Each straightforward arrangement has been carefully made with the less experienced players needs in mind and include very easy optional treble and bass parts so that even the very inexperienced player can take part in ensemble playing. These are sure-fire hits for the beginner ensemble to practice, enjoy and perform.

"...The Winners Galore collection is scored for four parts in all the keys you would need plus an optional easy treble and easy bass part. There are good recommendations for each of the parts and this time recorders can be involved. The parts are well presented with no awkward page turns and include pieces in Bb and Eb major. Again, there are lots of teaching opportunities here - repeats, D S al fine, triplets, articulations and dynamics. It works well with a basic band with a combination of more advanced players and beginners, and therefore is all-inclusive."
