two piccolo rep questions/requests

Post by paleogal »

Hi all, I'm totally new here on the forum, but I've been playing flute for 24 years and picc for about 20, combination of band and orchestral experience.

Anyway, I'm hoping someone here knows if either of these two things exists (I've done some google searching, but no real luck yet):

(1) An equivalent to the Trevor Wye Practice Book for Piccolo that focuses on band/wind ensemble rep (I'm currently in a semi-pro band, and want to push myself to learn more band rep)

(2) A collection of Sousa marches (and other popular band marches) - just the piccolo parts (ideally in C - I found some online, but many were in Db).

Please let me know if you have any resources for either or both of the above! Thanks!

I know of at least two band march books that come in parts, 'cause the Civic Band has them. One has only Sousa, one has a variety of march-composers. But unless you can find some individual selling them, you probably have to buy the complete set for Band.

All right, went and dug out my copies from my personal folder. First is March-Masters Folio for Band, compiled and arranged by James A. Scott. Published by Rubank, Inc and Hal Leonard. Second one is Pass in Review Band Book, from Carl Fischer, Inc. And actually neither are Sousa-exclusive. It has been quite a few years since the Band's played out of either book.

Hope that helps you some.
