JumpStart First Concert Flute/Oboe. (Grade 1). By Peter Blair. Concert band. For flute and oboe. Grade 1. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.50-1080H).
This concert band collection of fun tunes for beginning instrumentalists is written at an easy enough grade level that first year students can successfully play them. In fact, these clever selections may be performed after young players have had only 8-10 weeks of instruction on their instruments! The enhanced CD included with the score has full performance recordings of all the music, accompaniment tracks for three of the pieces and a wealth of other resources that will help the busy teacher plan that first concert. It also includes a sample concert invitation to parents, fingering charts, musical games to download and copy for students, and the JumpStart artwork to use in designing concert programs and publicity.
