This is a piece I wrote for my beginning band a few years ago. The instrumentation is for Flute, Bb Clarinet, Alto Sax, Trumpet, and Trombone. Percussion parts were originally left out since I had no percussionists that year, but since then I have used this with some simple rudiment exercises and cymbal rolls added. I will leave this up to the discretion of the conductor. This piece works as a nice simple introductory piece on a concert, as it starts with some simple whole note chords, then transitions to a moving quarter note melody with the trombone part playing fundamentals. This piece is also good for introducing first and second endings, part independence, fermatas, chord structure, and tone quality.
