Parallel to the first hours of instrumental lessons, the young musicians are motivated to play in a beginner's orchestra with the pieces from this collection. "Band Time Starter" is suitable for the first year in the winds class and contains four-part pieces in many different styles. The gradually progressing degree of difficulty corresponds to the material of "Look, Listen & Learn 1", but can also be used independently.

The first three pieces with only three voices adapt to the still limited range that the pupils have at this stage. For the same reason, sometimes the same voices differ slightly for different instruments. Minor differences can also be explained by some special conditions in a particular instrument, such as difficult tone sequences.

A CD compatible with the series is available to help students play at home with proper orchestral accompaniment. A rapid success is guaranteed!
