Philip Sparke's Starter Solos is the first volume of a progressive series of books that take the young wind player from beginner to accomplished musician. Specifically tailored for each instrument, this collection of 20 solos starts with pieces based on only a handful of notes and carefully introduces new musical elements such as articulation, dynamics, and key signatures in a structured progression to speed the learning process. The CD includes both full demos and play-along accompaniments for each piece.
