The piece was written by Helen Douthwaite for The Gorbals Youth Brass Band and premiered at The Scottish Youth Brass Band Championships in Perth, 2012.
It was inspired by a chant written and sung by the band members on their walk from school to the rehearsal space, and soon became the official GYBB song – words of advice to the audience …don’t mess with Dynamite!
A fun piece for training band, opening with chanting about the dangers of dynamite and developing into scored playing to get the participants engaged. A perfect piece to break the ice for young learners!
Set includes score and parts for:
- Cornet 1
- Cornet 2
- Eb Tenor Horn
- Eb Bass
