Burnin' Hot



Composer(s) / Arranger(s): Gary P. Gilroy,

Performance Time: 2:01  |  Grade: 1  |  Style: Contemporary

“Burnin’ Hot!” was composed for the Desmond and Martin Luther King Middle School Bands of Madera, California, Nicholas P. Gilroy, Conductor. This composition is meant to offer young band students with limited experience a fun and energetic concert opener.

A series of repeated eighth notes in a familiar accent pattern energize the work while plentiful percussion scoring challenges the young players of that section. Limited ranges and technical demands make the work accessible to most players who are in their first year of studying their instrument. 

“Burnin’ Hot!” Should be played at an aggressive tempo that constantly moves forward without rushing. It should serve well as a concert opener or closer.
