Free Download - Rondo Primo

Rondo Primo can be played after Lesson 4 of SoundStart, or once students have learned their first five notes. It is an easy way to introduce simple two-part playing to students, and can be worked into a nice performance by featuring different small groups on each of the Rondo parts.

To encourage teachers to try it with their beginning bands we are making it available as a free download. Click the link below to download the pdf file with the score and all the parts. See the performance notes included in the pdf file.
