This timeless melody by Gustav Holst is a perfect musical setting for exceptional teaching. The “Melody Mine” gives each member of the band the opportunity to play the melodic line while the teacher focuses on phrasing, shaping and other core musical concepts. The full band arrangement provides a lush chorale setting of the Holst hymn. The director also has the option to craft their own arrangement to feature soloist(s), instrumental choirs and full band. Master teacher Susan L. Smith has crafted a powerful teaching resource for use in any beginning band program.
