Chase Through the Midnight Forest was written for the 2010 Chisholm Trail Junior High Area 5th Grade Band (which includes the bands from Arbor Creek, Madison Place, and Sunnyside Elementary Schools) in Olathe, Kansas. The piece is meant to create the suspense of a harrowing chase and pursuit through a deep, dark, and eerie forest at midnight, never quite sure who or what might be close behind. Friend or foe... the only thing that is for sure is that the chase is on... and stopping to look behind you could be the biggest mistake you ever make...

Creepy Crawley Critters is an entertaining piece that beginning bands will enjoy playing; clarinets don't cross the break, and ranges are within the limits of first-year players. The overall effect is one of a small bug crawling or flying around, annoying the members of the band. The use of ratchet and slapstick adds to the entertainment factor and makes additional fun for percussion students. For even more entertainment value, you may want to consider conducting with a fly swatter or providing several swatters to students to use when they have rests.

 This lively and rhythmic selection was written to be a young band favorite as well as a crowd pleaser.  It provides a great opportunity to showcase your young percussionists with plenty of parts to stay active as they impress the audience with their exciting parts!  It entertains and is also a great counting exercise for the entire ensemble!

First-year players will love performing this bold and heroic work at their first concert. Make no mistake, this is not your average beginning band piece. Using only the first few notes in most beginning band methods, this dynamic work includes active percussion parts that  complement the winds which use simple quarter-note rhythms.  A dramatic and very powerful statement!
