The Monster Under the Bed by Robert Sheldon. Concert Band. Concert Band. Challenger Band Series. Fall; Halloween; Light Concert; Novelty. Grade 2. Conductor Score. 8 pages. Published by Alfred Music Publishing (AP.23290S).
What child hasn't imagined frightening creatures lurking in their rooms at bedtime? This imaginative and delightful composition helps to put a more comical and friendly face on this monster, employing a jaunty melody, whole-tone harmonies and the use of sound-tubes that produce an eerie and "monstrous" sound when whirled over the head. This is sure to be a hit with players and audience alike. The perfect novelty for any concert, and even more so if your concert is in late October!
