JumpStart First Holiday Concert - Percussion 1. (Grade 1). By Peter Blair. Concert band. For percussion. Grade 1. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.50-1122H).
As a follow-up to the popular JumpStart First Concert collection, Peter Blair has crafted another excellent series for beginning players. The music is easy enough for students to play after only 8-10 lessons. The pitches and rhythms used are limited to those typically covered in the early pages of most method books. The holiday music is interesting, fun and rewarding - easy enough for beginners to play well and "cool" enough to keep them engaged.
