The Distant Castle Composed by James Swearingen. For Concert Band. Published by C L Barnhouse Co. (Catalog # 023-3768-00)

** Stanton's Staff Selection - 2008 **
Key:
Bb - Meter: 4/4
Rhythms: dotted half notes; basic half, quarter, & 8th note patterns; some 16th notes in percussion
Teaching Concepts: varied articulations, tied note values, subdivision, Taiko drum use/history

One of the most fun pieces for young band this year!! Your band will love the pentatonic tonalities and your percussionists will have a blast playing the optional Taiko drums and other percussion parts. Plenty of mallet and auxillary percussion add character and authenticity to the piece. This will be a great recruitment tool when other students see how much fun your students are having!
