New Sheet Music 11th January 2013

I make no apologies for starting with one of the hottest tunes of the moment: Skyfall.  In addition to the standard sheet music published earlier, which is for voice and piano, we now have the same version with singalong CD, Soundtrack Selections for solo piano, and now an arrangement for string orchestra. They're not in stock at the moment, but will be soon.

Turning to other instruments, some new music from December:

A Special Case - new music for tenor horn by Jim Parker (of Midsomer Murders fame)

Jazz Fx and Great Winners - new music for oboe

I Feel Good and Big Chillers for saxophone

For those who love music theory, the 2012 exam papers have just been published, you can find them all in this section.

I have been adding the Really Easy Piano series to the website, not quite finished yet but all the most recent and bestselling titles are there, just type really easy piano into the search box.

Moving on to group music, for brass band we have Simon Dobson's A Symphony of Colours.

For string quartet, Lennon/McCartney's Come Together, for string orchestra we have  James Curnow' Japanese Folk Fantasy, also his Sagebrush and music from the Disney film Brave.  

Finally, for beginner concert band we have Louis Armstrong's What a Wonderful World.
