Philip Sparke’s STARTER STUDIES is the first volume of a progressive series of study books that takes the young wind player from beginner to accomplished musician.

The early stages of learning any instrument are undoubtedly the most important. A good teacher is of course essential but it is also vital to have stimulating study material, which complements your choice of teaching method, and is carefully tailored to introduce learning and playing skills in a structured manner.

In writing these studies, I have spoken to many teachers to determine the best way to introduce new notes to the young player while at the same time providing a framework to introduce new musical elements in a logical order to facilitate speedy growth of the ‘complete musician’.

Specifically tailored for each instrument, this collection of 65 studies offers a choice of starting note to suit individual tastes and carefully introduces new musical elements, such as articulation, dynamics and key signatures, in a structured progression to speed the learning process.


Philip Sparke's CLASSIC HYMNS

Editions available (with CD) for: Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet,  Trombone BC/TC and Euphonium TC/BC.  Separate Piano Accompaniment fits all solo books.

Publisher: Anglo Music Press         

I spent many of my formative years as a church organist and I have always impressed by the amount of great music the church has inspired – from Gregorian chant to the great hymn tunes of more recent years.

In choosing the hymns for this collection, I have drawn heavily, but not exclusively, on the great English hymns of the ‘golden age’ of the 18th and 19th centuries – tunes which are not only perfect for congregational singing, but also offered many musical possibilities for expansion and variation. 

The enclosed CD contains full performances as well as accompaniment-only tracks to use when a piano is not available. There are also plans to issue band arrangements for some of these solos – contact your local De Haske agent for details. 

So, whether you just want to play these arrangements for your own amusement, or in concert or contest, or for a musical interlude in a church service, I hope you get as much enjoyment out of these CLASSIC HYMNS as I have.


  • Philip Sparke's CLASSIC CHRISTMAS

    Editions available (with CD) for: Flute, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet,  Trombone/Euphonium BC and Trombone/Euphonium TC.  Separate Organ/Piano Accompaniment fits all solo books.

    Publisher: Anglo Music Press 

    Philip Sparke’s CLASSIC CHRISTMAS brings together 25 of the most popular Christmas carols in a simple but effective format which lends itself to many performance possibilities. 

    The carols can either be played with the enclosed CD accompaniments or with organ or piano using the separate accompaniment book (AMP 175) which fits with all the available instrumental books.  

    They can be performed as solos (in recitals, concerts or church services) and are all in suitable keys to accompany congregational singing.
