UIL for weak SNV w/strong trumpets
Posted by SNV on 11/20/2019, 8:40 am
I have a high school SNV band and need some spring tunes. I'm not finding much that works. Looking for 2s, might consider a 1 or a 3 if it checks all the boxes. |
Typical bottom band, I have a range of kids who barely missed the cut for 2nd band (and a few who would be in 2nd but had schedule issues) down to kids who can't play a Bb scale.
Trumpets are a real strength. Several strong players, I'll have all the parts covered. Many of them are annoyed at the low difficulty level that we're currently working on. I would love some music to challenge them while not leaving everyone else out to dry.
Everywhere else I have 1-2 kids who can play, then a bunch who range from "not bad for a freshman" to "please don't play this section." Attendance, behavior, ISS etc are issues. I expect to do lots of cutting and rewriting, no matter what I play.
Suggestions on music for the spring?
