This lively march was written by F.W. Meacham.
The song was copyrighted in 1885 and first published in 1914.

You will count "1 and 2 and" on this piece. The triplet notes, which appear at the very beginning,
will come on the second "and" beat.

Observe the fingering between the staves and choose a march rhythm on your keyboard.

Begin slowly and when you can play it well slowly, then try it faster.
