It’s a Stretch

Difficulty Level: Medium-Easy, Grade 3

Style: Contemporary Symphonic Music with jazzy moments

Original Music Composed by Tim Hinton

(Originally commissioned by the  Clinton H.S. Band, Clinton, NC, John Lowe, Director)

This show of original music explores everything "stretchy." The musical lines and phrases stretch and extend in interesting ways, and the visual possibilities are endless, from a warm-up body stretch to drill forms and guard props & equipment which stretch and bend.

Fee for use of music for the season:
