"Why aren't there more slow pieces in three four time?" Why indeed. My colleague, Peter Francis, conductor of the Queensland Youth Orchestra Wind Symphony, posed that question at a music teachers' conference along with the challenge to me to write such a piece. I did - the next morning! Thanks Peter! The music is slow and singing in style. It is plaintive and evocative in nature and it is simple - a simple song.

    Mr. Hultgren visited our band himself and composed it for us. It was a very nice piece and all instruments had a fun part. Like it's title it is very simple so it's great for relatively beginning bands. I would recommend this piece because it sounds very nice...

    and is great for practicing things like dynamics and tempo.
