Here’s a concert band piece I just finished, no name for it yet. It’s uses a lot of different libraries, and a lot of layering. Mixing is always the weakest link in my workflow so if anyone has suggestions, that’d be great.
This is written for a grade 2/2.5 level band. None of the woodwind or brass players have anything faster than an 8th note and they’re all within their respective range limitations. Although they will need some endurance.
The drums on the other hand are the unstoppable force here. I must have a thousand drummers playing at the end. I also included an optional electric guitar part. I’m fairly certain that most schools have guitar players and thought it would be fun to add that to the band. This might not be one of the greatest concert band pieces written, but I think it would be fun for young kids to play.
