  • Part 1: Oboe
  • Part 2: Oboe
  • Part 3: Bassoon (or Cor Anglais or Mini-Bassoon in F)
  • 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.
