Housetop Holiday Jam! arranged by Tyler S. Grant. For concert band. FJH Young Band. Full set (score and parts). Score only also available: B1471S. Grade 2. Score and parts. Composed 2011. Duration 2:00. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.B1471).
Feature practically every section in the band with this rock-style version of Up on the Housetop, complete with optional drumset. After a brief lyrical opening featuring solo trumpet, drumset and a grooving bass line take over. A fun feature section takes the melody and spreads it out among various sections, each in a different key, while percussion is used to link everything together. A great way to expose students to music written by one of their peers!
About FJH Young Band
Appropriate for middle school and smaller high school groups. Second clarinets usually stay below the break. Parts are written with more independence, and instrumentation increases slightly. There is still adequate doubling in the lower voices. Grades 2 - 2.5
