Every Fall I have my new band players to play a ensemble piece that uses their limited range ( 5-6 notes). The very familiar melody from Beethoven's 9th symphony is one that my kids enjoy playing! Here is my arrangement of that melody for students who have played 3-4 months. It is written for Flute, Clarinet, Alto Sax, Trumpet, Trombone (divisi parts), bells and percussion. Enjoy.
