Re: Grade I for HS band

I know how you (and your kids) feel. |
There are a few pieces that are multi-movement, where playing a movement or two is a grade 1 but play more for a grade 2 or 3. Maybe work on the whole piece, really polish the small part for contest, play the whole piece at spring concert. Grundman's Little English Suite is one.
Hi Yellow Board,
We all know there are some grade I's (and a few grade II's) that play and sound like they're meant for middle school kids. I'm looking for a grade I concert piece that a high school band student wouldn't be insulted by playing. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
