•   E Logo         Recommended Small Ensembles



    This page has been developed to provide students with a list of small ensembles that students can purchase from our local music store to help improve their technique as well as develop ensemble skills.  We also have some of these in our high school band library.  It is my hope that our students will be able to use these resources to their maximum potential.  This page will be updated as new solos are recommended/found.
