Because children respond quickly to the simple, direct, compelling rhythms of the march, it is an ideal musical form to introduce them to the pleasures of making music. Marches are very effective practice pieces, too, for developing instrumental playing skills. This excellent collection for piano presents 25 popular marches carefully arranged to produce the fullest, most harmonious sound within the capabilities (and small hand-spans) of young beginners.
Among these classic compositions, which children will recognize and enjoy as part of the grown-up world around them, are the Toreador March from Bizet's Carmen, Schubert's Marche Miiltaire, the Bridal March from Wagner's Lohengrin and a dazzling array of John Philip Sousa marches such as El Capitan, The Washington Post, The Stars and Stripes Forever! and Semper Fidelis. Other favourites include The Yankee Doodle Boy, When The Saints Go Marching In and Dixie. They are presented in large, clear, easy-to-read musical notation, and are accompanied by charming illustrations that invite children to respond to the challenge, join in the fun and bring the marches to life.
