Alfred Music Publishing proudly releases Michael Jackson Instrumental Solos, an instrumental songbook collection featuring the King of Pop’s greatest hits, arranged for solo performance and play-along for band and string instruments.
The series features solo arrangements to 12 of Michael’s most celebrated songs, including “Beat It,” “Billy Jean,” “Thriller,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” and more. Written for the level 2 – 3 instrumentalist, these solos are perfect as supplements to school or private lessons, repertoire for performances, or simply played for fun.
The string books are written as individual versions for violin, viola, and cello, and include their own piano accompaniment part and removal instrumental part with articulations and bowings. The band books are written for flute, clarinet, alto sax, tenor sax, trumpet, horn in F, and trombone, with an optional piano accompaniment book available separately. The piano accompaniment parts for both band and string instruments can be easily played by a teacher or intermediate piano student.
Each book contains a fully orchestrated CD, which features live instrumental performances, followed by a play-along track for each song. Also included are beautiful black and white images of select album covers.
