Teaching the World to Play!
Solo Time Patriotic FavoritesArranged by Andrew Balent
Acclaimed composer Andrew Balent provides students with the melodies to some of our country's most beloved and revered songs that speak the name Freedom! This compilation allows students to further develop skills of solo performance with music that is challenging but familiar. With this repertoire at hand, even less experienced performers have the opportunity to shine at solo festivals, concerts, and community events. Our national spirit is reaffirmed in songs that will never be silenced. Performances of pieces in this collection are sure to become fond musical memories for the student musician.
While the content of the book is familiar to all of us, the pieces fall into a few different categories: Songs of the Armed Forces, Patriotic Hymns, Songs of Reverent Nationalism, and patriotic songs with a popular flair. Titles include: America, The Beautiful; Battle Hymn of the Republic; The Stars and Stripes Forever; The Yankee Doodle Boy; You’re a Grand Old Flag; and more. Enjoy!
