sample music

Here are a few pieces that we have performed recently, so you can get an idea of the type of music we play:

We generally play music that's Graded 2 - 4.5 in terms of difficulty level. That's roughly the equivalent of a junior high school to college band level.


Sheet music is provided.  Music stands and chairs are provided at rehearsals.  You must provide your own music stands and chairs for concerts.
