Concert band - Grade 1
Composed by Brian Balmages. Concert Band. FJH Beginning Band. Full set (score and parts). Score only also available: B1189S. Score and set of parts. Duration 5 minutes, 57 seconds. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.B1189).

Item Number: FJ.B1189

This 4-movement multicultural suite provides a wealth of teaching and performance opportunities, especially at the beginning level. Each movement is based on a Smithsonian National Museum in Washington D.C. (Natural History, American Indian, African Art, and Air and Space). These movements can easily be performed separately. In addition to cross-curriculum teaching, the opening theme is slightly altered in each movement, teaching the concept of variations. Strongly consider this new work.

About FJH Beginning Band

Appropriate within the first year of instruction and beginning of the second year. Clarinets do not go above the break, and there is limited use of accidentals. Plenty of doublings in the lower voices. Grade 1.
