Prince of Peace for Easy Trumpet Trio
by Eddie Lewis
Prince of Peace was originally composed to be programmed on the same performance as the original Easy Christian Suite. We ended up never performing it, but other groups have in the years since it was written.
The idea behind this composition was to give early students a chance to perform some interesting music without pushing their skills too far. If performed by earlier students, a bit of rehearsal time is necessary, but they will enjoy it and so will the audience.
The skill level for Prince of Peace is easy, specifically Trumpet Tyro if you are using our skill levels. The trumpet tyro is the second beginner level. These students will have been playing trumpet between six months and two years.
The key signature is B flat (A flat concert). The highest note in the first part is D in the staff.
