This is a fun and well-written march with 1st-year players in mind. It could be a level 1/2 if not for the length and percussion parts. All wind parts are easily approachable by 1st-year players. Ranges are generally within the first 6 notes. Upper WW are mostly unison with an occasional 2nd Clarinet split. Lower WW/Brass are rhythmically unison with trombone occasionally split for harmonic depth. The Trumpet split is like the Clarinet in that it is rare and used for harmonic support and lower range for the youngest players.
Percussion parts are somewhat more “advanced” than the wind parts. It can still be performed using fewer players and simplified parts are provided. There is a Simplified Snare Drum part that removes the 16th note patterns from the Adv. Snare.
