Gregory Day has been a successful band director from elementary school through college since 1984. Following a tour of duty with the US Army Band, Mr. Day completed degrees in Music Education while building band programs in the Carolinas. With the opportunity to begin a new band program in 2000, Mr. Day wrote out of necessity, and the compositional results are still being enjoyed by students across the country. Presently, Mr. Day teaches at Southern Wesleyan University in Central, SC where he leads the University Wind and Jazz Ensembles and teaches freshman music courses as well as Orchestration and Arranging courses.
“March Uno” is designed to be an accessible, yet musically rewarding first march for beginning bands as well as a good sight reading piece for bands preparing for festival. Simple yet tasteful rhythms and harmonies, along with percussion parts including timpani will give students an attainable first year selection that will result in enthusiastic performers and audiences.
