South Valley Middle School Beginning Band – December 14, 2017
Knight Ride is written for a beginning band’s first concert (after approximately 3-4 months of playing). The piece suggests a medieval knight’s daring and adventurous ride across the countryside or any adventure undertaken at night. The title is also a tribute to one of my husband’s favorite childhood television shows, Knight Rider.
The musical concepts used in this piece are almost exclusively drawn from the first thirteen student pages in Essential Elements. Parts are optional for less common instruments.
