     The idea for this show is to take things that under normal circumstances would never be thought of as “Cool” and turn them into memorable moments! From the random samples in the beginning including an epic arrangement of “Merry had a little lamb,” the hand held disk ballad experience, to the hip hop dance breakdown, this show is a treat for the performers and audience alike! 
      "Not What, but How" was originally commissioned for Pacifica HS was the Scholastic Open Class Gold medalist at WGI World Championships in 2011. This show was released for the 2012 indoor season. 

       Important: Permission to arrange and perform would need to be granted to purchase this show due to the inclusion of a copyrighted material. There is an additional $300 publisher fee for the use of the song, “This is How We Do It” by by Montell Jordan.

      This show requires a Remo "sound shape" head for each performer. Click HERE for more info on these.
