Inspired by Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf, Family Fugue uses a narrator to blend the familiar folk song Frere Jacques with a delightful story line of the misadventures of three characters: Woodwind, Brass, and Percussion. An educational gem, this innovative work is ideal for teaching major and minor tonality, melodic retrograde, dynamic contrast, and of course, fugue form. Consider using a school administrator or local celebrity as your narrator. Easy to put together, great for recruiting, and forever memorable! (4:24).

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.
