Little Shiny Brass Musical History Tour  
A music history for training band and narrator

Join us on a trip through 1000 years of music history! Perfect for players who've been learning for a year or so, with twelve short pieces (each about a minute long).

We've simplified the music to use only the most basic rhythms and a limited range of just over one octave. And, of course, they're in nice keys for all players. A narrator guides us on our journey, bringing music history to life, from plainsong, through polyphony, the Baroque, the Symphony, right through to 20th century movie scores.

Includes Learner Parts using only five notes and rudimentary rhythms.
