My son and I spend a lot of time in the back yard due to Covid-19. Every day we go outside, we see lizards hanging on our fence and house. We stare at the lizards, and they gaze back at us like they rule the backyard. These lizards are the true kings of our yard. The music is set in concert B flat and 4/4 time signature. I have written easily accessible percussion parts, and most wind parts are set for 7-8 notes in the instruments' range. There are opportunities for dynamics and articulations for your young students. Thank you so much for programming The Lizard King!
