Orchestral Brass Section Adaptations

Orchestral brass section adaptations are parts of major symphonic repertoire that already feature great brass writing. The music is adapted (as opposed to arranged) only as much as is necessary to support the original brass parts. In this way the players are learning the original excerpts, and in their original contexts.

    Accessories

    Musicians of all instruments benefit greatly from knowing where they can get their generic accesories: bags, rags and the like. We are fortunate to have teamed up with BlueCoda.biz, a division of the very successful cloth diaper manufacturer BluePenguin.biz. Their colorful fabrics work well with our needs, and we have commissioned them to produce small bags for valve oils, pencils, erasers, violin rosin, etc.
