Snowfall for Concert Band (Grade 2)

Thrilled to share my first Grade 2 band piece, Snowfall! Based on the first movement of my saxophone quartet Polar Vortex, this piece evokes the peacefulness and tranquility of a light winter’s snow through simple melodic lines, textural snow flurries, and modal harmony.

This piece is a great way to introduce young players to compound meter (6/8) and non-diatonic harmonies, as well as improve upon lyrical playing, intonation, balance, and blend. It’s also perfect for holiday concerts!
