Originally developed as part of our 2020 Virtual Band Consortium, this Grade 3 Flex Band work by Ben Hylton is inspired by trail-running in the Texas Hill Country. Uptempo “stomp” sections challenge your first chair players with 16th-note patterns while keeping things simple for lower parts. A short chorale section offers a moment of repose and the percussion bring us back into the forward motion, carrying us over the hills and through the creeks on a Texas adventure.
Cinematic backing tracks are included at different tempi so that your students can practice along for more fun and even record themselves along with the track for video assignments or projects.
All Virtual Files allow you to share with your students digitally.
