New Sheet Music This Week, 18th September 2012

This week I've done a bit more for concert band, I couldn't resist The Big Bang Theory as I love the show so much!

For younger players we have Disney Film Favorites, Jazzy Holidays and the theme from The Muppet Show.  The theme from The Titanic, My Heart Will Go On, and Excerpts from Pictures at an Exhibition (Mussorgsky), both in a flexible arrangement.

I have also belatedly added Wright & Round's 120 Hymns for Wind Band to the section

Moving on to SATB choir, we have John Gardner's Carols and The Oxford Book of Descants, a collection of descants for hymns and carols.

For other instruments, Fanny Waterman's Piano Treasury Volume 1 (Volume 2 on the way), the new edition of Improve your Sight Reading Cello Grades 1-3, Guitar Basics Workouts (scales and arpeggios).

More new music in the works, stay tuned for details.

New Sheet Music this week, 10th September 2012

This week I'm starting with the new LCM piano handbooks for 2013-2017.  They're not all available yet, but the first five grades are available to order on the website in the piano exam materials section.

A few new publications are just out:

Hornscape, music for french horn or tenor horn and piano, a welcome addition to the somewhat thin repertoire for these instruments.

Stranger on the A Train, for trombone/euphonium bass clef or treble clef and also tuba bass clef or treble clef.

Sticking with the brass theme, here we have Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No 2 arranged for brass tentet. And also Penny Lane for brass tentet.

If strings are your thing, Christmas Favourites for String Quartet is sure to interest - Jingle Bells, Winter Wonderland and more arranged for four players.

Lastly, new music for oboe - Philip Sparke's White Light, for oboe and piano.

More to come, new Christmas titles are on the way now...
