"Dachshund Trot" takes us on the journey of a curious dachshund, discovering and sniffing out the world at her own pace. It is a wonderful way to introduce your youngest players to mixed meter in an easy, laid back way. The walking “trot” tempo allows beginners to feel at ease while counting in 5/4 time. It also allows your players to connect to the piece with their own special friend at home, having meaning to all pet lovers out there.
The MaxFlex Series for adaptable wind band offers maximum flexibility with pieces across all grade levels, featuring 4 parts plus optional percussion. Each part is transposed and playable by any wind or keyboard percussion instrument in the ensemble. Recommended part assignments are included, but directors may “mix and match” as they see fit.
