Created with the developing percussion ensemble in mind, Snowfall Dances is a work with few technical difficulties. Focus should remain on balance and blend. All must be treated in such a manner to that they may be heard without obscuring another part. Think melodically, no matter what part you may be playing. Lock into a groove quickly so that tempo and feel are not forced and have some fun with the light, melodic material.
