Instrumental Resources Overview

If you have a brass or instrumental ensemble at your corps, there is a whole realm of music available to you.

It is important to remember that instrumental music is not exclusively for a 30 piece brass band.  In fact, there are many series written for as few as 6 or even 4 players.

The most complete online index of music published by The Salvation Army can be found at www.samusicindex.com listing almost everything that is out there that the Army publishes for brass (including instrumental) and vocal, and includes any YouTube clips or recordings that can be found on the internet.
