Written for Junior/Beginner Wind Band with some easy 2nd parts written for players who are only able to play the first few notes on the instrument. The 1st parts are pitched at around UK Grade 1 standard. Although some of the rhythms are tricky for beginners, they are short phrases and can be taught fairly quickly by putting some words to them.

I composed these original pieces for my own school bands mainly due to the fact that genuine band music for beginners is very hard to find. Also, due to the clash in keys between flutes and clarinets/brass, there are usually awkward passages with flutes needing to play E flats and A flats or other instruments needing to play sharps. In these pieces, I have tried to make easy finger changes where possible. I hope you will find these pieces fun and rewarding to perform!

The first piece ’Warp Factor 10’ has a rock beat with some empty bars for percussionists to improvise fills (though these could be as easy as just adding 3 crotchet beats if necessary). ’Alien Landscape’ is a modern sounding piece. Apologies here if the glock part sounds odd - its due to the limitations of changing a GM sound in the middle of a part. ’Battle’ is fairly straightforward, but the percussionists will enjoy playing the loud soli sections. Finally ’Victory Celebration’ contains a few simple syncopations to create an up tempo feel.
