Program Notes

March of the June Bugs is a delightful piece for beginning band. June bugs are very numerous during the summer months in the composer's hometown of Kingsburg, California. As soon as the sun sets, the june bugs come out! Clumsily making their way into the night, they hiss and bump into just about everything. While not an attractive looking insect, their arrival is nonetheless affectionately looked upon as the official beginning of summer in Kingsburg.

-Program Note by publisher


March of the June Bugs by Michael Schofield is an interesting piece for mid- to late first-year bands. Featuring easy rhythms and comfortable ranges for each instrument, this composition portrays the summer emergence of June bugs. Mouthpiece buzzing effects played by trumpets and horns, along with tambourine and vibraslap, all combine to musically convey the crawling, hissing insect.
