For Four Improvers

(4-part semi-flexible ensemble)


  • Part 1:  Flute
  • Part 2:  Oboe/Flute
  • Part 3:  Clarinet in B-flat
  • Part 4:  Clarinet in B-flat  OR  Part 4:  Bassoon

Standard – IMPROVER

Notes, rhythms and technical challenges within the range of ABRSM Grade 2 – 3 players.  Parts are more independent than in the easy-level sets, making greater demands in terms of counting skills and confidence.

Individual parts are relatively straightforward, so that players can concentrate on the ensemble aspects of performance.
