This is a concert band piece written for elementary school band. It is written in a march style designed to teach students the concept of half steps using short, five note, chromatic lines. It can be used as an opener to your program or a closing piece. My students really enjoyed playing it. They especially loved the percussion effects and the trombones liked the glissandos as well. Feel free to add any silly percussion effects that you want to enhance the circus feel. All of the parts are included and you may make as many copies as you like for your students. I've also included an optional piano part. Also included are my conductor notes as well as a recording. I hope you and your students enjoy it!
