Winners For All is suitable for almost any combination of brass and/or woodwind instruments. The inclusion of additional, very simple parts for most instruments opens up the opportunity for beginners to take early steps into ensemble playing. Breath marks and phrasing are indicated in line with the ability range and an optional keyboard/ piano part is available to provide support if needed.
The arrangements can be expanded, using the included parts for strings, percussion and guitar, to work with ensembles of virtually every combination of instruments and the inclusion of very easy open stringed parts widens the possibilities for player inclusion and flexibility even further.

Winners For All is a collection of popular pieces very carefully arranged to allow the inclusion of as wide a range of instrumentalists and abilities as possible into simple ensemble playing. It is designed to meet the needs of the beginner as well as to satisfy the more able player of about grade 2- 4. The material works very well with pure brass and/or woodwind ensembles but is equally as affective with small mixed ensembles through to full orchestra.
Peter Lawrance had lessons with James Brown at the Royal Academy of Music after which he attended Liverpool and Reading Universities, studying composition with Hugh Wood and the horn with James Eastham. He then followed an extensive career in playing and teaching, including working as head of an instrumental teaching service and as an examiner for the Guildhall School of Music.
His educational music and compositions for brass, wind and orchestra have been widely published and performed.
