Continuing with the success of the popular Compatible series, Compatible Duets for Winds Volume 2 contains 29 duets in a variety of styles that can be played with any combination of two wind instruments. Students can develop their chamber-ensemble skills while playing with their friends, no matter what wind instruments they play. Ranging from grade levels 2-3, Compatible Duets for Winds Volume 2 is perfect for band directors looking for new tools for the classroom, and its flexibility makes it a must-have for any wind player.
Having students play in small chamber music groups is a very beneficial exercise to improve the student's overall musicianship. The simplest form of chamber music is the duet. It is an opportunity for the student to play with a teacher or to play with another student of similar abilities. Aspects of playing such as tone quality, intonation, technique and ensemble skills can be developed during the process of studying duets. These duets are different in that they have many different performance options, since all of the books in this series are compatible. As a former middle-school band director I always had students that wanted to come to the band room during lunch or after school; students who just wanted to play with their friends. That was not possible since there was very little duet material available that was compatible with all of the wind instruments. This book and the first volume in the series take care of that. A student can now grab their friend, no matter what instrument they play, and have hours of fun playing duets together. Most importantly, they will learn something in the process. The duets have been generally placed in the book in order of difficulty and cover a range of keys that are appropriate for this ability level. Special care was given to making sure that both of the duet parts were on a similar ability level and that each line was given an opportunity to play a lead role at some point during the arrangement. Also, most of the musical markings are attached to both systems, and the point size of the music was considered for ease of reading. It is my hope that this collection will help to stimulate and enhance the musicianship of the performers. It was a pleasure for me to have the opportunity to put together this collection. I hope it is a useful tool for you for years to come.
