I was asked to take on a colleague's wind band for a term while they were involved in another project. The state of music (scores and parts) was quite chaotic, and they were bored with what they had. The simplest solution was to write something for them that I thought they could handle. Written as a march, with occasional sections in five bar phrases, I made sure that they were learning to read and follow the music. We had a great time together!
