Fun way to teach dynamics!
- Great first performance piece
- 5-note Range
- Focus on dynamics
- 7 different percussion parts (including advanced/easy snare)
We have a lot of fun with this in band. I tell students that it's a piece written about having lots of homework. After the intro, it starts soft, and then gradually gets louder as the homework increases. Students love measure 13 when the instruments play at different times. It's a great way to teach dynamics and basic ensemble skills. Play it with your students, and they will all say they love Homework!
