Third in the composer's "machine" series (following "Afterburn" and "Adrenaline Engines"), Steel is an energetic concert opener that contains exciting percussion writing, interesting use of syncopation, motivic development, and multiple time signature changes. Like any great composition, Steel strikes a perfect mix of variety and repetition, and is totally compelling in its melodic and rhythmic infectiousness. Want to motivate your students? Let them play this wildly successful piece and watch their musical excitement level grow by leaps and bounds!

    The top band I'm in at McDonald jr high scored a one on this at UIL and we love it so much that we can play it at 180. It actually feels pretty easy.
