Warwick Music Group believe in the transformational power of music. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to make music. We also believe that children are our future, and by thinking differently we can make a difference to them and the whole world.
As musicians, we knew that traditional brass instruments can be heavy, costly – and easily damaged. What’s more, they don’t always fit little hands!
We knew too that sales of traditional brass instruments were declining – and that bands and orchestras worldwide were reporting a shortage of brass players.
So we set out to do something about it.
We wondered if it was possible to create a brass instrument in plastic; to create the same sound as a brass instrument but without the cost, the weight or the damage if it is dropped. We started thinking what fun it would be if brass instruments were not just brass coloured – but available in a whole variety of colours.
Creating the world’s first plastic trombone was not easy (we didn’t expect it to be) but there was so much help and enthusiasm – and so much support for what we were setting out to do – that we kept at it.
And so, after many trials (and quite a few tears) in late 2010, we sold our very first pBone: it was the world’s first plastic trombone and we’re rather proud to say, it has gone on to become the world’s best-selling.
Since then we’ve extended our range of pInstruments by developing and innovating too so that it now includes:
- pBone: The robust and hassle-free beginner trombone. A fun and engaging trombone; the world’s best-selling!
- pBone mini: The smaller and lighter trombone, perfect for little hands. A mini trombone ideal for young beginners
- pTrumpet: The robust and hassle-free beginner trumpet. A fun and engaging trumpet experience perfect for beginners
- pBuzz: A totally new instrument; the fun first step to brass playing. The easiest way to start your trombone journey
- pCornet: The lightweight, easy to hold cornet. A fun and engaging cornet experience perfect for beginners
- pTrumpet hyTech: The high quality & affordable trumpet. A great player experience suitable for beginners and students at any level.
And we have not stopped there.
Our origins were as a brass sheet music supplier, so we have created a raft of tuition books and online resources including on-demand lessons; coaching by some of the world’s top players and a whole range of courses for individuals and music teachers alike.
Our sheet music catalogue, Warwick Music Publishing is now a digital download service for consumers. It now features more than 1,000 titles covering a variety of genres, styles and abilities and representing composers from across the globe.
