    Great piece for elementary/ middle school ensemble

    Comments:

    Great piece for intermediate percussion ensemble- I am a fan of all of John Beck's compositions. Focuses on honing ensemble skills involving syncopation, question- answer structure, balance, and dynamics while maintaining musical integrity. Easy set up; 2 timps, sd, guiro, triangle, maracas and bells. I just performed this with my elementary/ middle school music camp ensemble and it was both fun to play and a real crowd pleaser.
