Listen to the Marine Band play the national anthem - a standard arrangement:



My favorite video of the national anthem did not allow embedding, but I'll link here to the Michigan Marching Band -- they are so sharp with their white gloves and precise playing, and the boom of "cannon" fire about halfway through, and then a fly-over by a stealth bomber!

I think this site is wonderful! Well done. I am a 14 yr old 'ocarinist' and this site has been ever so useful in helping me find some simple tunes to play on my ocarina. I am also planning to learn to the piano soon and already play the clarinet. As I said, this site has been incredibly useful and my friend and I are going to try our Music badge for guides so finding the music for 'Taps' was essential. Thank you for making such an amazing site!

Thank you so much for all the information and materials! Your site is very thorough and well organized! I am a piano teacher in New Orleans, LA and in the process of putting together my own curriculum and recordings. You have inspired me to make my materials available to all online!
