Episode 296: The Art of the March
In the promo for this week’s show I used the phrase “8 to 5”, and if you played in a school marching band you quickly understood that I was referring to how many marching steps would move you 5 yards. Eight steps works perfectly with march music because at the end of 8 beats you start a new phrase in the music. Starting with military marching and then moving the discipline onto a football field has proved a perfect transition and bands all over the US are getting ready to show us their skill this fall.
