In this introduction to the march idiom, we divide this expansive idiom into common time and compound time marches. We start with common time marches and first start to build with the four main rhythms we'll use. ALAP/ASAmP, fusion, syllables, are all discussed. Next up - the world of 4/4 marches!
In this session we take a look at simple marches and the common fundamentals that must exist to succeed with them. The key to playing anything well is in the approach. We go over Mairi's wedding and the March of the Champions Supreme with this approach. Take this back to your pipe band and spread the word!
In this session we take a look at my favorite wee march of all time. March of the Champions Supreme is a regal, majestic tune with a strong melody line. A perfect medley intro, this tune is an excellent addition to ANY repertoire!
