Start your very first beginning band concert with "On Parade." Using just the first six notes learned in band instruction, your students will feel confident performing this solid and melodic march. After and introduction and opening theme, a "trumpet and drum" melody is presented, followed by a woodwind accompaniment and then a countermelody in the lower voices. Audiences love marches, and you won't find a more solid way to begin that first concert!
