Eddie Lewis composed Graduation March in 2013 as a gift to two of his students, Andrew and Robert Thomson. It is written in the style of Edward Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance and would make a great march for a graduation ceremony at a small school.
The highest note is A Flat in the first part, there is plenty of rest in most of the parts, and the rhythms are simple. The piece can be learned quickly by most intermediate trumpet players.
Andrew and Robert first began meeting at Mr. Lewis' house along with other very young homeschooled students to be part of a trumpet ensemble of beginners. Later, when his son, Alex, began attending public school, the ensemble disbanded and the twins began taking private lessons together.
Music is a source of joy for Robert and Andrew and teaching them has always been a pleasure for Mr. Lewis as well. There is something about working with homeschooled students. There is no pressure to win contests and the main objective is always about maximizing the joy of music in the students' lives.
Now that the twins are graduating and going off to college, Mr. Lewis wrote this pomp and circumstance march for them to commemorate the years they spent working together. Graduation March is dedicated to Robert and Andrew as a gift to see them through to this next phase in their lives. May they always keep the joy of music pure in their hearts.
