Wizard's Walk

Editor's note:
In honor of Snowmageddon, I wanted to post Snowflake Reel. But I don't have a chart for it yet, so here is Wizard's Walk instead. Happy practicing. On Saturday (the day Baltimore got 2 feet of snow) this blog had the highest traffic in its history. Hopefully that means that all of my students will sound fantastic next week!

This tune is frequently played for contradances and has a matching dance by the same name. The dance is not my favorite, but the tune is a lot of fun.


  1. What a coincidence! I run across this exactly three years later, during a snowstorm I heard described as Snowmageddon 2.0, after attending a contra dance and falling in love with (and looking for) this tune. Thanks!

  2. Thanks so much for this! I heard this piece recently and was so happy to find the score for it. I've transposed your score for cello: if you'd like a copy for yourself, just let me know. :)
