A firm favourite! 4 players set in a circle with one drum each. (Can be doubled to form 2 circles). This is a fun piece in a March style where the players not only play their own drums but also each others sticks. This piece has also been performed using UV lights and flourescent paint on the sticks for that extra show-biz touch! An exciting performance piece with an exciting finish. Grades 2-3

Stick March 2 is now available (Grade 4 +) Please see the Senior Percussion Ensembles page.

A simple yet highly effective piece for claves or woodblocks. The players position themeselves around the audience who become mesmerised by the rain drops "falling" around them. Something a little different and more difficult than first appears. Great for team building and memory. 6 players. Claves or woodbocks (High to Low if possible) Any grade.
