Snake Charmer

By Randall Standridge

Concert Band - Grade 2
Composed by Randall Standridge. Score and set of parts. Published by Grand Mesa Music (GC.GMM213-SET).

Item Number: GC.GMM213-SET

"This highly evocative work invokes the air of exotic mystery that surrounds the art of snake charming. An eastern scale, very colorful percussion writing, aleatoric techniques, and an optional loud or soft ending make "Snake Charmer" a one-of -a-kind work that adventurous bands will not want to miss. Use of the included scale study sheet will help students understand the mechanics of the music and add to their success playing what should become a classic in the young band literature.".

    My school band played this for our Spring Concert. It was an excellent piece, very enjoyable and most definately challenging. It's sound was mysterious and slow and then changed to a fast and serpentine speed. The Arabian theme was perfect to perform!
