As the title implies, "Riptide" is a forceful and energetic piece for your young musicians. Opening with slower rhythms and haunting harmonies, a signature of David Shaffer, "Riptide" builds in intensity throughout the composition. Simple rhythmic patterns outline the flowing minor melodies and combined with the unique percussion writing make this a perfect teaching piece. A fun composition to rehearse and perform, "Riptide" will be the piece that your students will ask for again and again.
