** Stanton’s Staff Selection – 2007 **
Key: Bb - Meters: 4/4, cut-time
Rhythms: 8th note patterns/syncopation, 16th note patterns, dotted quarter note rhythms
Teaching Concepts: dynamic layering, subdivision, phrasing, cut-time

Soaring, lyrical melodies and floating rhythmic figures elicit the sight of hot air balloons succombing to the 'Spirit of the Winds'. Though straight-forward, this is a great teaching piece for addressing syncopated rhythms, cut-time note values, and articulation. Ideal for concert or festival performance. (5:15)
