Song Suite for Band” is written in contemporary style. It comprises three movements, a march, a waltz, and a tango. The work is a “very tonal, Grade-2 piece,” which, according to Bukvich, contains a wealth of teaching material for young band musicians. Dan has also used it successfully in high school honor band settings as a teaching/site-reading piece.
