Featuring the keyboard percussion section, "Walking The Planks" will be an invaluable addition to your next beginning band concert. Using a nautical theme, Robert W. Smith has created this work to reinforce musical concepts and highlight this crucial area of skill development for all percussionists. Using only six notes, the melody will flow seamlessly across the planks while providing a delightful musical experience for all. The optional accelerando provides an added incentive to the percussion section leading to a very exciting conclusion. Just imagine...they will be stars using keyboard instruments! What a great message to send in this early part of their band experience!
