Preview the Score

Although this piece is written in D minor, Macroburst only uses the initial range learned by beginning band musicians (low concert A-concert G) and avoids E natural entirely. It's a perfect first introduction to minor keys while still being playable by very beginning bands.

Carefully scored to be exciting but accessible, all instruments are given a crucial role to bring this piece to life. Bombastic percussion and driving bass lines propel the main melodies forward throughout the piece. This is sure to be a piece your students (and audience) love!
