Description

In The Final Boss, composer Andrew Smit takes dramatic inspiration from the final levels of older video games, in which the player faces off against their strongest opponent. This piece provides an engaging opportunity for developing players to explore an aggressive, urgent feel. It also serves to strengthen the players’ comfortability with syncopated rhythms and the Phrygian mode. Perfect for younger groups or college methods courses!

Smit dedicates this piece to his junior high school band director, Kim Coughlin, with gratitude.
