Ensemble MusicMost of the Society ensemble music for this year was arranged and purchased from Dan Jones. To aid your practice, you might wish to visit Dan Jones’ Video of Works for Ensemble and for Teachers.  You can listen to the piece and play along.  The videos are on YouTube, so you can slow down the playback speed to suit your current level (go to settings which is found under the clog wheel symbol at the bottom right of the YT video).
