Thanks to the herculean effort by composer Marja Ikonen, Leading Tones Music has seven new adaptable scores for beginner ensembles! Ikonen’s prolific compositional output was praised in February’s SPOL magazine (Suomen Puhallinorkesteriliitto/Finnish Wind Band Association).
Composer Marja Ikonen is a nationally-acclaimed music educator in Rantasalmi, Finland, where she has received awards of Finland’s Teacher of the Year (2009) and Band of the Year (2014). She has written many arrangements and original works for musicians of all ages and abilities, combining creative pedagogy and artistry for beginners and advanced musicians alike.
Congratulations to Marja Ikonen on her well-deserved recognition and her new arrangements, published exclusively on Leading Tones Music.
