Dark Beginnings


In Dark Beginnings, Randall Standridge takes many familiar beginning band tunes (Hot Cross Buns, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Twinkle Twinkle, Baa Baa Black Sheep) and mashes them together with a sinister twist!  These songs are transformed into minor mode versions and set along with bombastic percussion, driving rhythms, and vocal effects for the winds.  Optional easier snare drum and mallet parts will ensure this work is appropriate for first or second-year players.  Use the downloadable melody sheet to assist in your musicians' development.  A perfect way to make some of the first tunes your students learned "cool" again.
