The familiar theme from the Andante movement of Haydn’s Symphony No. 94 has been adapted for a first year band. The title, Haydn Seek Surprise, will not only make your students laugh, but will also make sure they never mispronounce “Haydn” again! This work is made up of an easy set of variations of the original theme, and careful attention must be given to dynamics and articulation. What a great way to get your young band acquainted with standard repertoire while still having fun!
