||Grade 3 Passing Through March was written to provide access to the 6/8 military-style march to intermediate musicians. It is written in standard 1st strain-2nd strain-Trio with a repeat of the Trio after a 12 measure dogfight. The parts are accessible to all levels of proficiency within each section, with the 1st chair parts being the most challenging. The low brass parts are interesting, yet playable for musicians at this level, and the percussion parts are stylistically correct. This Grade 3 march is playable by your 8th or 9th grade band.
