Get on top of those Summer Chores with Superbrass

There is plenty of great music to enjoy for free thanks to those super players at Superbrass...

Superbrass
  The new initiative will offer free music downloads

Superbrass Music has just launched its free music download initiative entitled, 'The Summer's Chores'.

It sees a series of fun pieces of music all expertly arranged by Jock McKenzie — and aimed at youngsters to keep them motivated with their practice and playing during the ongoing lockdown period at home.

Free

The project will eventually be sold through the Superbrass website, but for the rest of the summer it is available for FREE to brass playing friends, students, teachers, performers, followers and colleagues as a Dropbox download.

The music is divided into two separate sized groups (or ensembles) of 5 parts or 8 parts with the intention that the player performs all the parts to each piece while learning and experimenting how to record themselves, learn how to make a click-track, how to multi-track, mix, video-edit and much, much more….

40 total

There are 20 works for each ensemble size — so 40 works in total to enjoy!!

There are 5 part pieces in the fantastic New Orleans Jazz and Dixieland style, while the 8 part pieces are more ceremonial and of a Baroque and Renaissance style.

Scores and parts are supplied for all brass instruments in all keys (Concert Pitch, Bb, Eb and F)

Clear response

A spokesperson told 4BR: "The music is designed as a clear response to the rapidly changing creative world we now live in.

It allows musicians of all standards and backgrounds to continue to make music alone (or together with others), while benefiting and learning the basic parallel skill sets now seemingly used by all. (Advisory of Grade 5 and above)."

They added: "We believe that we all have had to quickly learn and come to terms with how to use and engage with developing online content.

To help throughout the summer months we will regularly be sign-posting 3rd party tips and content on how best to use simple smart phone apps and software, many of which are FREE to download.

To help us do this, we have created our very own virtual student, Yazz, to help you navigate around any obstacles you may encounter."
