About the Music
Young band with electronics?! Sounds scary!


Afraid of the Dark illustrates a dark and spooky trip through a nightmare with the help of an electronic accompaniment! Every instrument plays an important role in this exciting, fun, and unique piece. Afraid of the Dark is a Grade 1 work written to help develop the second-year band in a variety of areas.


Written in a flexible manner for young ensembles of nearly any instrumentation, students will expand their range beyond the one-octave Bb major scale, be introduced to concert pitches A-flat and F-sharp, and develop a steady sense of pulse (thanks to the pre-recorded electronic accompaniment).
