Dixieland Jam

Lee Shook

Grade 1

'Dixieland Jam' is a lively "New Orleans style" piece, written for 2nd and 3rd year band students. The melody, comprised of a series of familiar blues riffs, is set in a 12 bar blues form. Ranges are limited and stay within the concert Bb scale octave. All lower voiced instruments play the bass line which will make this composition very playable by bands with limited instrumentation. The percussion groove can be performed on drum set if needed. Cowbell and siren whistle play an important role in establishing the dixieland flavor of this piece. Eighth notes should be performed in swing style.

Your audiences will definitely enjoy Dixieland Jam!

Awesome dixieland style music

I direct and play with a group of seniors who reside in a Retirement Village and all play instruments. Our counting skills are not up to par but we love dixieland style music. This music fits the bill. We are refreshing our music skills of counting, phrasing and still having fun. This music is great because we enjoy dixieland style and learn at the same time. Great music! Great fun!

Very Engaging

This was a bit of a stretch for the beginning students, but the students with 2 or more years experience loved it. It was very catchy to them and the parts repeated enough to make it pretty accessible.
