sheet music for mixed ability ensembles with any combination of instruments in an easy to rehearse format

Are you looking for inspiring and engaging music for your ensemble to play?

Do you have a non-standard group of instruments?

Does your ensemble have a range of abilities including beginners?

Do you want to make rehearsals easier and more fun?


If you answered 'yes' to any of those questions then please read on.


Here at Ensembles Made Simple we specialise in sheet music for groups of players in their first few years of learning an instrument. The pieces are flexible and versatile, but perhaps more importantly, they are satisfying to play and sound good.


A wide range of well known classical and traditional melodies are on offer and each arrangement has been devised specifically to cater for a range of playing abilities. Some pieces are very easy and suit virtual beginners, others are pitched at players who have been playing for a several years. Have a look at available pieces to choose repertoire of appropriate difficulty and style for your ensemble.


The unusual format of each piece gives all the players all the music, promoting good listening skills and making rehearsals easier. See about the music. This also means they are usable by any combination of instruments including…

  • orchestras
  • wind bands
  • brass bands
  • classical guitar groups
  • single instrument choirs
  • string quartets (inc. 3 violins and cello)
  • mixed chamber ensembles.


For larger groups the final ‘mix’ is up to you depending on the capabilities of the players and desired sound. This is very easy to do. See tips and ideas. Many pieces include suggestions and there is lots of scope for player input meaning they own the end result.


It’s an extremely creative way to work with an ensemble of any age group, but is especially rewarding with enthusiastic youngsters. Print off the free samples and give it a go!
