Beginners Brass

This is a set of very simple and short exercises that I did for the Downton Training Band. They are aimed at people who have been playing for a very short time, probably in their first three months. They start with a unison exercise which is only over a major third range. This is then expanded to simple harmony, and then the final exercise expands to a fourth. Bb range: C to E(F) Eb range: G to B(C) Only crotchets (quarter notes) and minims (half notes) are used.
