Tales Of The Sea
Your developing players will really enjoy this one!
'Tales Of The Sea' is a great choice as a major work for festival performances. I wanted to write something different to the majority of music out there. I was also thinking of students of this level and how much they enjoy playing the melody. So I came up with four contrasting sections, each section featuring a different part of the band. The four different melodies then play together to bring the piece to its conclusion - every player having a melody to play at the same time! This creates a great opportunity to work on balance where everyone is equally important. Please listen and check this one out. Commissioned work and test piece for the 2012 North Shore Primary Schools Band Festival.
Currently on the test piece list for Open D Grade for the NSW State Band Championships. Available in print and PDF download.
