Skidaddle will be the perfect item to provide a lighter moment in your band's programme. The composer Barrie Gott writes:


‘‘Skidaddle’ literally means to move in a hurry. This piece means exactly that - to get moving. I was experimenting at the piano at school one morning waiting for my first students and this little ditty came to mind. Four hours later I had the first draft done!


It is supposed to be a bit of fun with a few technical demands for cornet and euphonium in particular. The semi-quaver (sixteenth) work needs to be precise. Try and get the audience involved and they’ll be yours for the larger works on the programme.’
