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

    In the seventh grade, I was first chair. We went to Monican High School for a competition. We played some warm - up scales and went on stage. Then, we started playing. When we got to the part when we start clapping, I saw the judges reading the score and clapping...

    with us. Later that day, we went to the awards ceremony and Vernon Johns Middle School(us) first place. That was the happiest day of my life! :) I'm now in the ninth grade an I always think about that day.

  • 2007-07-28 00:00:00.0 This song is the bomb!

    I played this in middle school on trombone. Everyone got good parts at times. And there was a variety of things happening in it. For example there's a part where some of the band is clapping, some are tapping, and the low brass has the melody. This song tends...

    to get stuck in your head because it's so good and there's lots of different parts in this song and lots of various percussion is used in this peice.
