School of Hard Knocks
School of Hard Knocks composed by Murray Houllif. For Body Percussion. Body Percussion. Grade 4. Published by Kendor Music Inc (KN.20447).
Body percussion ensembles will love the programmatic nature of this imaginative piece. It will remind players and listeners of a day at school - knuckled rapping on wood (desk), hand claps, tummy pats, and foot taps and stomps - together and in imitation (mimicry). It begins in a march-like 4/4 and ends in a skipping (home from school) 6/8. Two copies of each are provided for ensembles with 3 to 6 (or more in multiples of three) players.
