By: arr Peter Lawrance
A versatile and very popular collection of well known pieces from a wide variety of styles for players to dip into and enjoy.
Easy Winners for Tuba has something for everyone. From Christmas tunes to classics, from television themes to folk tunes, the seventy five unaccompanied tunes have been carefully selected and arranged. The choice of range, technique and style of music have been carefully geared to the instrument and ability range.
The titles to Easy Winners for Tuba have been arranged as unaccompanied solos, but combined with optional CD or easy piano accompaniments, a whole new world of playing opportunity opens up. Teachers talk of pupils finding the book addictive, unable to leave it alone after playing along with the CD which cleverly incorporates just enough of the solo line to support the player without providing simply a play along.
Easy Winners for Tuba is an essential companion to a tutor book and an ideal partner to Winners Galore for Tuba.
“... This is the sequel to Winners Galore, Peter Lawrances compendium of well-known tunes that has proved a hit with students bored by the staid folk and hymn tunes that populate the average tutor book. Easy Winners repeats Lawrances successful formula. The selection, which ranges from grades 1 - 4 in difficulty, is both large and versatile - the 75 tunes are ideal for sight-reading tests or for dipping into at the end of a practice session. It can be purchased with or without a backing CD, and there is also a piano accompaniment available separately for concert use.”
