Written for the Santan Junior High percussion class, Whatcha Baion? was designed to be a flexible composition for junior high programs that desire to introduce students to percussion ensemble. This ensemble can be performed by players with a wide range of skill levels and utilizes instruments that are commonly found in junior high band rooms. It would also make a great addition to concerts by more experienced ensembles that need to quickly put together audience-friendly or “pop” style programs.

… very useful in a school training situation, and it is tuneful and rhythmically interesting enough to have audience appeal at any school performance. – F. Michael Combs
