High Velocity



Composer(s) / Arranger(s): Kurtis J. Bertauche

Performance Time: 4:00  |  Grade: 4  |  Style: Contemporary

Velocity is speed with direction. High Velocity was inspired by objects moving at incredible speeds with tremendous velocities. The piece begins at a relentless pace with constantly changing time signatures and moves with high energy before entering a slower legato section. After a brief legato section, the piece returns to its original speed and only gets faster until the end.

Special care should be taken to ensure that the last note of the piece is not cut short, rather it should be played for its full value. Also, if desired, the snare drum player may double with either the tom part or bass drum part as long as it doesn’t overpower the rest of the ensemble or make the sound too muddy from measure 66 through 69.
