A fantastic premiere of 'A Story To Tell' at the NSW Schools Band Festival by Matthew Pearce Public School. An amazing band program with amazing year 4 (second year) players. Congratulations conductor Renee Boland on a fine performance! 'HARD KNOX' written exclusively for the Knox Grammar Prep School Band in 2013 is now available. Check it out in the level 2.5 section. Nice to meet and catch up with band directors from all over Australia at ANBOC in Brisbane over the weekend. Music heading off to schools in Queensland and Victoria. 'Remember The ANZACs' was particularly popular -...
I've just finished my first level 1.5 piece - a commissioned work for the Matthew Pearce Public School Intermediate Band. 'A Story To Tell' is a bit like a theme and variations. Contrasting sections that use the same melody 'tell the story'. I'm looking forward to rehearsing the band in early August a few weeks before they give the premiere performance at the NSW Schools Band Festival on August 19th.
Thank you BandNSW for choosing 'Schaefer's Old Time Dances' for the Junior C Grade list of test pieces for the 2018 NSW State Band Championships! A new feature this year is having a list of four test pieces to choose from for each grade.
It was great to travel to Brisbane for the Brass Music Specialists and ABODA Queensland Reading Day on Sunday the 18th of Feb. The band played 'Blytheswood Overture' and 'Crestwood March' very well! Was fantastic to chat with other local publishers. I'm looking forward to returning to Queensland for the ANBOC conference in early October.
Very excited to have both 'Blytheswood Overture' and 'Crestwood March' included on the play list at the Engadine Music Band Reading Day on Saturday 3rd Feb 2018. I'll be there & all my music will be available on the day. I hope to see many of you music teacher types there. Thanks Engadine Music!
