  • July 13, 2007 not a great arrangement

    It's nice to have the piece arranged as a solo piece for piccolo, but the parts that you really want to play (Trio) are arranged in the highest register, so only your neighborhood dogs are likely to hear and appreciate it. Not exactly how I remember playing it years...

  • June 29, 2006 A must for every piccolo player

    I've been playing this piece since the 8th grade (25 yrs). As a military musician it was a requirement to graduate the School of Music. If you plan to go ANYWHERE with music and play flute or picc - LEARN THIS PIECE - memorized if possible. It will never let you...

  • February 21, 2006 Practice Practice Practice

    I have heard this piece before and never played it until 2 years ago when I was a junior. I was second chair and the only one willing to play it on my piccolo. It turned out really good with a few mistakes. I thought I was done with the...

    piece, boy was I wrong. Last year, my senoir year, we had a Sousa event at my high school. We played quite a few Sousa pieces, including Stars and Stripes Forever. Of course I was getting the piccolo solo, and I was first chair again. The stipulation this time was that I had to memorize the wholo solo and stand in front of the audience. Talk about pressure. In the end, it ended up sounding better than the previous year. A piece that deserves full dedication and practice everyday

  • November 16, 2005 AWESOME

    This song is absolutely great. WE played this last year and i was piccolo, so my advice is to practice if you get the solo. Oh and if you are playing it with someone else TUNE! Piccolos are [difficult] to tune so keep it UP1
