The Graceful Monkey Dance

Bastien Gliech
Grade 8, Edmunds Middle School

“The Graceful Monkey Dance is a song written for brass quintet and two percussionists. This piece is based around several varying melodies. At first, the piece starts out fast and intense, with complicated rhythmic patterns. Soon after, the tempo changes. The piece transitions from a fast paced introduction to a slower part. The third section speeds up as the snare drum plays differing rhythms. It slows down for a satisfying ending.”
