Marcus & Martinus - Elektrisk

This arrangement has a bit of more Norwegian background.
Marcus & Martinus are two pretty famous Norwegian twin brothers who won "Melodi Grand Prix Junior" (that's the Norwegian name of "Junior Eurovision Song Contest") in 2012 and since then, thet have a pretty successful musical career.
One of their most popular songs is "Elektrisk" (English: "Electric"), and of course my pupils requested a version of it.

After making some cuts, rearranging some parts, ended up with a shorter version which we played with a small group of brass and wind instruments. Top voice was flute, and the bass line was taken by a baritone horn. Now I rearranged the rearrangement and made it for trumpets and band.
Here's how it sounds:
And here is a backing track so you can play on top of it: You may download the music sheet as PDF, or in MuseScore format, so you can edit, transpose, transcribe and customize it to your own needs.

First voice is a bit high for beginners. Originally was written for flute, but a medium level pupil could play it. However, there is an alternate version, one octave lower.
Second voice is pretty easy, while third voice is for very beginners (first year of playing).

If needed, HERE's an arrangement for other instruments (flute, clarinet, horn...etc) which is compatible with the trumpet arrangement and the backing track, but can be used also as a standalone arrangement, without backing track.

Here's the original version:
