Incredibly Useful Ensemble Series

All titles in the Incredibly Useful Ensemble Series are designed to work with as few as four to as many as four thousand players.

The first and second parts are doubled at the octave higher to enable the settings to be utilised as full band or orchestra pieces. Each set offers two ensembles, usually contrasting in style, and often complimentary in performing difficulty.

Each set of the Incredibly Useful Ensemble Series is able to be used by musicians from level 1 to 2 or equivalent to the Brolga Music Elementary and Young Band and Orchestra Series.

Aussie Band

The Concert Curriculum For Band

The Aussie Band Concert Curriculum is designed to help the Director take their band through the first year of concert performance by providing three complete concert repertoires. The music has been written to provide concert pieces that are accessible to the young musicians with the conductor or performers not having to read masses of diagrams, charts and explanations. The technical and musical demands are method book inclusive. A pre-publication survey ascertained that the materials used are found within the parameters of the most common method books in school.

This is not a method book replacement. The Aussie Band Concert Curriculum has been developed to enhance and extend the method book of your choice to the concert stage.
