What - Why - How - Where

What: An ABSOLUTELY FREE resource for sheet music and performance videos for

Chamber Music and Fundamentals


Why: To allow students and educators the ability to teach, learn and "perform"

through short 60 second arrangements


How: Distributing materials written with Flexible Instrumentation

which utilizes free public domain compositions 

that have no copyright restrictions


Where: Educators access a Google Folder, then assign parts in any combination of C, Bb, Eb or F. 

Students practice on YouTube, TikTok and Instagram or they can download Performance Videos for their own study. 

Students can use these videos to hear their own mistakes or showcase their final product

by creating videos of them playing along with others.
