[Print Version] Flying Solo offers 12 original studies for treble clef brass instruments, composed by David Pugh, and aimed at players at around Grade 4-6 standard. The selection of studies offers the opportunity to progressively establish relevant key signature awareness, whilst learning rhythmic and dynamic control. Collectively, the pieces offer comprehensive support in developing the individual skills of the solo player.
Using the keys of scales which students are required to learn for examination purposes, this selection of solo studies opens the door to an enhanced learning process. The pieces help to secure an effective association with relevant key
signatures for the students’ stage of playing, whilst building additional performance and reading skills.
The solo studies can be played by any treble clef brass instrument. The pieces are versatile and inclusive in their progressive nature and offer players and teachers a refreshing selection of repertoires to keep interest and engagement at the fore. For groups of same-pitched instruments try our duo and trio collections too!
Steps for 1, 2 and 3
Flying Solo is part of the Steps for 1, 2 and 3 series – a variety of progressive repertoires for treble clef brass instruments, offering solos, duos and trios. The books support developing players via new music which focuses on the keys of the scales required by examination boards. The Steps for 1, 2 and 3 series generates a solid key-signature-learning link for the student and enables the instrumental tutor to expand their delivery approach in an individual or group teaching environment.
