Maestro’s Dream is a unique production created to help marching bands continue learning and performing during COVID-19. Each element was expertly crafted by top designers and is free to license for a virtual marching band performance with Keep Making Music.
All source material was chosen from the public domain and reworked into a modern setting through feel, reharmonization, or surprise “twists.” Music is designed to get easier the further it goes to ensure that directors have the appropriate time to achieve at a high level.
Band body and color guard choreography is included in every Maestro’s Dream + KMM package. All visuals are driven by visual musicality and are designed for all levels. Each phrase is broken down count by count and stylistically varied to offer a variety of performance qualities.
