About Tradition of Excellence: Excellence in Performance

Excellence in performance is a concert band repertoire series correlated with the Tradition of Excellence Comprehensive Band Method by Bruce Pearson and Ryan Nowlin. The compositions in the series correlate to a specific page in Tradition of Excellence Books 1, 2, or 3 and reinforce and expand on skills and concepts introduced in the method.

/Selections include exciting parts for every player, grade-appropriate cross-cueing, accessible ranges and rhythms, creative percussion writing, electric bass and rehearsal piano parts, and full conductor scores with rehearsal suggestions, program notes and composer biographies. In addition, the Grade 1 works provide an Advanced Snare Drum part for percussionists who have achieved a higher level of ability, playable simultaneously with the more basic Snare Drum part to facilitate differentiated learning.

  • March 14, 2018 Fun mix of Irish & Italian folksongs

    Our community band enjoyed playing this as much as our audiences enjoyed listening to it. It's a long-ish piece (about 7 minutes), as it is a medley of four Irish folksongs (The girl I let behind me, No one can love like an Irishman, The Galway piper, and...

    Irish Washerwoman) followed by three Italian folksongs (The fair maid of Sorrento, Tarantella, and Funiculi, Funicula). I've never thought of these two different musical traditions going together, but it works! I like how the beautiful middle section transitions to an energetic, rousing finish. Audience members will likely know several of these tunes even if they don't know what they're called.
