Program Notes

You've Got the Snare Part! was commissioned in 2020 by Katie Manker and the Largo Middle IB World School Band Program. For this piece, I wanted something that could work with multiple different skill levels, and could work for multiple instrumentations. While the music is intended for snare drums, other things such as toms or even found instruments like planks of wood or wooden stools can work. This piece is a great way to introduce your students to percussion ensemble music and playing as a group while still keeping them engaged because they are playing snare drum music.

You've Got the Snare Part is set to be published by Excelcia Music Publishing soon.
