Fun and furious, fantastic and forward, Funky Fugue for Five fashions friendly rhythms into a festive foray for four or five fledgling friends to fire funky feels at fans while furthering their feel of the fugue. 

Veteran percussion composer Alan Keown is no stranger to effective music education. With  minimal non-pitched instrumentation and very basic rhythmic language, Keown’s piece provides a setting in which beginners create contrapuntal and engaging musical experience. It also introduces them to basic fugal concepts such as subject, canon, and development. Ideally written for five players, it can also be played by four by removing the optional timpani part.
