Modern Band Classroom

Create Your Own pHorn Section!

Many great rock bands have incorporated horn sections into their music. They do it for the punch, for the sound, for the color it gives each song. Now, in cooperation with Little Kids Rock, we’ve included the best of the horn licks for almost any type if rock music you want to create. You don’t even have to know how to read music!

pBone and pTrumpet are ideally suited to working in a Modern Band classroom setting. They are easy to play, resist damage, easily maintained and easily stored. Our goal is to make quality wind and brass instruments that are accessible and fun. For Modern Band classrooms, pInstruments are ideal.

Brass Tabs
Modern Band programs are well-known for teaching music apart from typical musical notation, so we wanted a quick and simple way to help pupils join in with these styles of music, mainly by ear. We wanted to create material that is useful in an informal learning setting and that needed no traditional music reading skills. That is why we created "Brass Tabs."

Brass Tabs is not a method or a “how to play a brass instrument”, neither is this meant to replace traditional notation or trombone slide charts. It is intended to help teachers make brass playing more fun, and more quickly engage a wider range of pupils in learning music through wind instrument playing.

Brass Tabs are intended for use with the original tracks or in a band setting as an aid to playing by ear. If you were to try to learn the riffs from the tabs alone, as you might with traditional brass notation, this would be quite hard! So please remember these tabs are to aid informal, ear-based learning.
