Keys: Bb, Eb - Meter: 4/4Rhythms: whole, half, quarter, & basic 8th note patterns, dotted half notes, tied note valuesTeaching Concepts: blend/balance, phrasing, intonation, tied note values, long tones, key change
Improve intonation, blend/balance, phrasing, and endurance with this solidly scored arrangement of The Water is Wide. With the melody in unison and simple rhythmic patterns used throughout, your group will sound strong. Your percussionists' mallet skills will improve with parts that echo and counter the melody and really add to the arrangement. A wonderful, lyrical choice for concert or contest.
