This selection is the ideal first piece to play with your band. Limited range of 6 notes with an optional upper C in the trumpet. The note names are inside each note head. For the slow readers this gives them a boost to associate note names with fingerings or positions. This is also available in A Beginners Set, CB#291, a combination of this piece and Alpha Notes.
