Dr Downing Flexible Ensembles

 

Music Teacher:

 

"A truly indispensible resource for busy string teachers is the series devised by Dr Downing, 'Music Made to Measure'.  These arrangements are by far the most adaptable of any I have come across and are excellent value............The parts are well written and Downing gives precise instructions as to which parts will work well together, from duet to quintet or larger ensemble................Highly recommended for players grades 5-7."

 

This is what "Winds" magazine says:

"..................The editors have worked hard at making the arrangements truly flexible.  While there are up to six different parts, they are generally playable by trios, with clear guidance on which parts are required and which parts can be added.  They are set at 'intermediate' level with players about grade 5-6 being required..................The music is very neatly computer printed and the paper is good quality.  The score is neatly laid out, with big notes with plenty of space in between.  There is a helpful range of performance notes with each set."
