Very Beginning Band
for: Youth concert band
|Author/Composer||Douglas E. Wagner|
Inspired by demonstrated courage, this original work is intended as a confidence-building piece for a young ensemble’s first Spring concert.
It serves as a perfect gateway into articulation and varying dynamics: the three most commonly occurring articulation marks (staccato, accent, and tenuto) have been included, as have the middle three dynamic markings (mezzo piano, mezzo forte, and forte) building and declining in intensity. These musical concepts can be experienced individually and within the ensemble.
A bold musical statement!
