HOUSETOP MARCH

Arrangement by: Brian Harris

A favorite of beginners and parents alike, HouseTop March will bring a smile to everyone's face . . . even Mr. Scrooge's! A march-style setting of Up On The House Top, this easy work contains a single one-measure solo for your best trumpeter and a one-note solo for the humble triangle player. And at the end, be certain to listen for the reindeer paws on the roof!
