The composer's premise that students learning resembles planets in motion---moving faster as learning increases much like planets closer to the sun orbit at a greater speed---was the inspiration for this original work. Using only the first few notes presented in most beginning band methods without eighth notes in the winds, this original work is scored without a key signature in order to be accessible even to the least-experience ensemble. This engaging melody will make your very beginning band sound very advanced, featuring solid scoring and doubling throughout. Right in the pocket! (1:45)
