Robert W. Smith's latest original work for the beginning band will be a valued addition to your concert or festival program.

    Difficulty Level:
  • March 20, 2011 Quite the piece of music

    This piece of music has its ups and downs. The percussion, depending on skill level, can be quite hard, as the songs gets faster and faster. But, with practice, this song can be quite enjoyable. I would get it for anyone with an itermediate or advanced sense of music, but...

    not a beginner.
