Kjos Multiple Option Scoring

The use of Kjos Multiple Option Scoring allows unlimited flexibility to meet the needs of your ensemble. The arrangements are written in three parts: A, B, and C. The A part is the "melody" part, the B part is a "harmony" part, and the C part is a "bass line" part. By mixing and matching these parts, each arrangement can be performed in an unlimited number of ways by any combination of band, orchestra, or (in some instances) mixed--A as a solo; A and B as a duet; or A, B, and C as a trio. If more than one instrument plays the A, B, or C part, the arrangements can also be performed as quartets, quintets, larger ensembles, percussion ensembles, or even by a full concert band when the percussion parts are included. You can also add the Piano Accompaniment (if available) to any combination to further enhance your performance.

In addition: Kjos Music provides "Multi-level" scoring (pertaining to grade/difficulty level):
