Rest Easy with Hal Leonard Parade Sequence Arrangements Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Parades are great public relations showcases for your band program, yet many are last-minute requests with the exception of Memorial Day, Independence Day, and, possibly, Christmas. As a result, they are often hastily put together and a lower priority when compared with other musical and educational goals. Let Stanton’s help reduce your stress and anxiety, and make it easier to say ‘yes’ to your community with this series of Parade Sequence sets from Hal Leonard.
Published in the Series One marching band series at the grade 2 level, they are solidly scored, and easy to put together – perfect for those Monday parade request phone calls for a Thursday morning parade. Each set features a few well-known songs appropriate to each event/style, with easy drum cadences in between. They are also customizable – use 1, 2, or all of the titles included in each set.
The series consists of Patriotic Parade Sequence (we highly recommend this one for your 4th of July Parade), Disney Parade Sequence, Spanish Parade Sequence, and Christmas Parade Sequence. Complete song lists and preview audio are available by clicking on each title, and you can add them to your shopping cart or Stanton’s Sheet Music wish list. With these titles in your marching band library you can rest easy the next time you get a parade request on short-notice. Now all you have to focus on is getting your students out of class, bus requests, permission slips, lunch arrangements,…
