The Galleon Returns is a triumphant piece for beginning band. In the key of B-flat major, it only uses the (typically) first seven notes learned. Using scalar and arpeggio patterns, the piece has an optimistic sound, one depicting the awaited return of a magnificent galleon. Imagine a ship sailing into port with people gathering, waving and cheering. This piece is written to be a developmentally appropriate, full length musical work for young performers. Note: there is only one dynamic marked at the beginning. If the performing ensemble is ready for more, add some more dynamics in! The Galleon Returns offers a great opportunity to make music for beginning-level musicians. This piece directly correlates with the Foundation Warm-Up Series. This series is designed to follow most beginning band methods. The early sets focus primarily on airflow, common patterns, and reinforcing concepts presented in the method books. As the series develops, the sets become more like a traditional band warm-up, including long tones, flexibility exercises, articulation, scale patterns, and a chorale.
