Woodwind Colours

PDF sheet music for small mixed woodwind ensembles

It can be difficult to find ensemble pieces for a mixed woodwind group where parts are interesting but relatively straightforward for all players.  Woodwind Colours aims to provide music for a range of different combinations at easy, improver and intermediate level.

All the arrangements are by experienced woodwind teacher Catriona Melville-Mason and have been tried and tested by small family, school and late-learner ensembles.  Many of the pieces have been favourably received at competition festivals, music courses and school concerts.

Most of the 16 Woodwind Colours sets downloadable from this website include from 8 – 10 assorted short pieces which aim to exploit the character and tone colour of the specific woodwind instruments.

Easy and improver sets can be played one-to-a-part or by a larger group with several players to each part.  The arrangements tend to be semi-flexible – useful for school and community groups where the personnel/instrument combination keeps changing.

Intermediate sets are more likely to be played one-to-a-part and by specific instruments.

The sets available here are delivered as PDF downloads ready to print and play just as soon as you have them.  Don’t forget to keep back up copies!
