If you're working with your students on 8th note subdivision and rhythmic independence Rocky Mountain Romp is perfect for your next concert! A Coplandesque hoedown in style and harmony, this piece will really make your students count. The layered rhythmic interplay of the simpler parts makes the piece sound more difficult than it is and the advanced percussion part really adds to the overall effect. An ideal opportunity to tie in a lesson on the Rocky Mountains and the American West and introduce your students to the writing of Aaron Copland (think Hoedown from Rodeo)! (2:00)
