They are pesky to some, but they live a quiet and busy life. Ants can be seen almost everywhere we walk! This song is dedicated to ants who work work work! This song is written in 4/4 time signature and Concert E flat Major. The ant 'theme' can be heard as an ostinato rhythmic figure heard in the low brass/low reed instruments throughout this song. Percussion play a heavy role with persistent rhythms from start to finish. There are also many opportunities for your young players to use dynamic expression and articulations.
