Your student is sure to feel like a king or queen when they play the opening bars of this majestic march! Strong, staccato horn calls are what begin the piece and continue to be repeated throughout. Since the student will love the boldness of the opening, you can teach them that it will make the forte sections even more dramatic if they include stark dynamic contrasts in appropriate places. Feel the spirit of the march and put on your royal crown!Edit

This piece is from the collection "Perfoming in Style", Alfred Publishing Company, 1989
