We Can Help Energize Your High-School Jazz/Pep/Horn Band
Everyone is on equal playing ground – engagement re-envisioned.
We’ve greatly enhanced the “lead chart” concept with expanded rhythm section options/parts.
Reduces Student Dropouts
More captivating, playing and engaging than counting 37 bars of rests.
Engage youth in performance ensembles with music and music education methods that are relevant and accessible to them.
Students Enjoy Practice
It’s not much fun practicing the 3rd trumpet part. We have star parts for all!
Everyone can play all the time with parts at varying skill levels, be challenged on an individual basis, and try new instruments and parts and include the master recording to learn from and play-along with.
Music Has Cultural Substance
We hand-picked relevant music that is current and reflects society and classrooms.
There’s a lot to learn; music is a gateway.
