The Junior Concert Band Collection was inspired by the innovative new instrumental 'hubs' in London. These 'hubs' give students the opportunity to continue learning the instrument that they were taught in school as part of the wider opportunities programme, with other students from other schools.

There are a wealth of arrangements and compositions available for young orchestras (including string orchestras) and youth brass bands, but we very quickly found that there are very few resources for young wind orchestra ensembles.

The wider opportunities programme has given rise to greater numbers of young instrumentalists playing in ensembles. The combination of instrumentalists in each cohort has been variable. Resultantly, I decided to make my own arrangements, transcriptions or compositions which were tailored to the students and to the particular instrumentation required. The experience of directing and teaching the resulting pieces to the ensemble has allowed me to review and refine many of my initial ideas. It is these that form the basis of this collection.
