Ann Cherry for Music Teacher Magazine

When I played these tunes through on the trumpet I was so impressed. Here are tunes and melodies that have not just been churned out, but had real character and charm. Contained within the eight tunes are a lovely variety of moods, tempos, styles and time signatures... the music more than dipicts the various aspects of circus life, which thier title suggests... These tunes are simple, but so effective. They are carfully written to really aid the pupil and teacher in learning the basics of dynamics.
