    Hi all!
    In September my wind band will be all new beginner year 7 (initial to grade 1 standard) due to most of my band this year being made up of year 11s!
    Can anyone recommend some really simple band music that would excite them and get them interested in playing as a group?
    Thanks [​IMG]
  2. I am in the same position and have just placed an order for Just Dance Lady Gaga pub Hal Leonard Discovery Series which is aimed at grade 1.

    Ooh that sounds good. Was hoping to have some more modern stuff other than same old **** that's been in the cupboards at work for years.

    Do you know this site?
    Browse the different sections. You can view sample pages to see if any of it is the standard you are looking for. There are several grouping options. I've used many of the titles from Absolute Beginners (up to grade 1) with my beginner ensembles and some of the other titles for more advanced players. Most titles give an indication of ABRSM grade required.
