  1. Websters PPP; Preparation, Practice, Performance

    A concise approach based on the physiology, methodology and psychology of brass playing. Forward by James Gourlay; ‘Roger Webster, as almost everyone involved in the World of brass playing will know, is internationally renowned as a soloist who combines impeccable technique with unparalleled artistry. He is also a respected pedagogue who combines his vast experience as a performer with research into the World's best teaching methods. I am therefore delighted to recommend this book, which combines science with common sense, wisdom with practicality. It should become an indispensable tool for teachers of all brass instruments, who might use it to develop their skills, and, of course, for students, who will, through the daily application of the principles contained herein, find the path to self-development and fulfilment as musicians. Dr. Webster should be justly proud to have made such an important contribution to brass pedagogy.’ CD included.

  3. The Best of Brass

    Those that count themselves part of the 'brass band movement' cannot live and work for long before coming across Roy Newsome. As a conductor, broadcaster, composer, teacher, adjudicator and entrepreneur, Roy has been a centre-pin of the movement since the Second World War and his influence is enormous. This autobiographical volume is as compendious as his career is all-embracing, charting his early days in Elland, his golden period at Black Dyke, his journeyman years in command of some of the world's greatest bands and fulsome times working tirelessly with Brass in Concert, Salford University, the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain and BBC Radio's Listen to the Band. Now enjoying a hectic retirement, we are grateful to 'Dr Roy' for finding time to share his memories. In this volume of reminiscences, Roy Newsome reveals more of himself, more of the man that others admire, and draws an affectionate picture of the movement that he has served and shaped in equal measure for so long.

  8. In Good Company

    In Good Company covers a wide expanse of time and space in Salvation Army history. The author, Lieut-Colonel Norman Bearcroft, was born in the UK in 1926 and now in retirement serves his Lord in the USA. His memoirs take the reader on a fascinating journey from Wallsend to New York via Alderney, London, Canada, Ukraine, Zimbabwe and Australia, to name just a few stops along the way. The book covers such ground as the first National School of Music, the re-formation of the Canadian Staff Band, the founding of The International Staff Songsters and much more besides. His personal insights and powers of storytelling bring historical events to life. As Lieut-Colonel (Dr) Ray Steadman-Allen OF writes in his Foreword: 'The book is not only about Norman but also a first-hand account of his Army world, its personalities and occasions. It makes a humorously-laced, informative and inspiring read.'

  9. History, Harmony and Humanity

    This unique book celebrates the life and work of Ray Steadman-Allen, described by Ronald Holz as 'the most gifted, prolific and forward-looking talent' in 60 years of Salvation Army music, who has also enriched the entire brass band scene with 'significant and challenging works'. It includes autobiography, appreciation and analysis of RSA's brass and choral music along with revealing insights into his life and his vocation as a minister of the Christian gospel. Friends, family, colleagues, academics and practitioners all have their say and, in a final section, 'RSA' himself reveals his lesser-known lighter side.
