John McAllister - John McAllister Music
"Adagio" is a poignant band piece for young musicians. With sweeping melodies and lush chords, this piece is great for teaching students to play expressively. With a comfortable range throughout, students can really get beyond the notes focusing on the phrasing and flow of the piece. "Adagio" would be a great addition to a program of any season, and adds good contrast to the lively, fast, and loud pieces.
