Programming: Great choice for church especially during Lent, but also works well as a chamber selection for recitals, or a combo selection.
The song has a melancholy sound featuring the lower tessitura of the solo instrument. Very easy to play, but with a few syncopations that
might challenge an early beginner. An early intermediate player will do well, but advanced players will enjoy the opportunity to focus on tone control and phrasing.

The title of the song is a Bible reference, paraphrasing Ecclesiastes:

“I reflected on everything that is accomplished by man on earth, and I concluded:
Everything he has accomplished is futile — like chasing the wind!"

"Dust in the Wind" is a song recorded by American progressive rock band Kansas and written by band member Kerry Livgren, first released on their 1977 album Point of Know Return.

The song peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 the week of April 22, 1978, making it Kansas's only top ten Billboard Hot 100 charting single. The 45-rpm single was certified Gold for sales of one million units by the RIAA shortly after the height of its popularity as a hit single. More than 25 years later, the RIAA certified Gold the digital download format of the song, Kansas' only single to do so certified as of September 17, 2008.[2]" Wikipedia.
