Performance Notes

  • Adaptable Parts – All musicians have access to ALL parts of every piece. Playable with any four instruments!
  • Alternate Parts – In addition to adaptable parts, tenor sax and horn have alternate parts putting them in an ideal range.
  • Accompaniment – An easy piano part is provided for additional support. When appropriate, chords are included for guitar players.
  • Play Along – Downloadable mp3 tracks are included for students to practice with and even use in performance or at home.
  • Percussion – In addition to adaptable mallet parts, separate percussion parts are also provided.
  • Teaching Opportunities Far Beyond Performance – Let students make choices about orchestration, flip your band so bass voices always have the melody, teach the same musical line to everyone at the same time…. endless possibilities!

  • Part 1: Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Alto Sax, Trumpet, Violin, Mallet Percussion
