March of the Arachnids

“March of the Arachnids” is the second movement in the composer’s “Garden Suite”, following “Frogs” from 2018. “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” and “Shoo Fly” serve as its primary melodic material, though given a minor mode and 6/8 twist. Composer Standridge shows off his chops brilliantly by combining the two melodies for a rousing ending. This strikingly original march is perfect for any performance venue, and is a fantastic way to teach your students how to play in fast 6/8.
