"Nauset" is one of three movements of a larger work called, "Beachscapes."  Nauset beach is located on the ocean side of Cape Cod, Massachusetts where the largest waves can be found on the New England Coast.  The music is a bit whimsical, portraying a beach scene with surfers falling off their boards, people on the beach, and people going to the food shacks.  The music is quite syncopated giving it a jazzy fun atmosphere.  Ranges are well within a grade 3 with the first trumpet players highest note is G. 


The other two movements, Nauset and Scarborough are published by Northeastern Music Publications and avialable through your local music store, J. W. Pepper, and Theodore Presser (  All of our music may be ordered through this website.
