Scatterbrains and Sleepyheads! - Level 2 Concert Band
This introductory jazz piece for young bands is inspired by those (brass?!) musicians who
may still be just a bit sleepy during morning band practice...
With plenty of scope for acting up by both performers and conductor, there is still plenty of technique to focus on - the ‘doo-dat’ of jazz quavers, sectional dynamics, playing soli (and drum kit solo) passages, all within a manageable range for all parts.
Conductors, please feel free to ‘overact’ and exaggerate the humour of the theme for a humorous showpiece, or play it straight through as a shorter performance item—it will work well either way.
