Pennine continue with download help

Pennine Music continues to help players get back into trim with their music download offers.

Pennine Music
  Pennine Music continues to support players and bands

With no date yet as to when brass bands can get back to rehearsing together, Pennine Music has decided to start offering free PDF downloads of their music alongside backing tracks to download and play along to at home.

PDF Free Solo Parts

To start, Pennine is offering for download, the solo cornet, solo horn and euphonium parts available for six of their most popular titles from last year. More titles as downloads will be added as quickly as possible, so be sure to visit them regularly to take advantage of all the free offers.

New Backing Tracks

Pennine Music has also invested in new software to aid in creating backing tracks for you to play along to at home.

Whilst these will never replace the sound of a live brass band, it should give something to help play along to.

The solo title backing tracks have also had the solo line removed so you can be the star!

Enjoy

Pennine Music owner, Gavin Somerset, told 4BR: "We hope our customers will enjoy these free downloads as it's our way of saying thank you to all of those who have continued to support us during this difficult time.

We want to help keep people playing and this new initiative should help all players keep their lip in."

How Far I'll Go (from Moana)
Rey's Theme (from Star Wars)
Hopelessly Devoted To you (from Grease)
Willy Wonka (Selections From)
It Was A Very Good Year (for multiple soloists)
