Learn how to play the Colonel Bogey March by F. J. Ricketts on piano with this Synthesia piano tutorial! Please enjoy!
Composed by Lieutenant F. J. Ricketts, the Colonel Bogey March is a famous march tune that we have arranged for piano. Ricketts wrote the tune based on the curious whistle that a military man and golfer used instead of shouting “Fore!”. The whistle was a descending minor third, which can be heard at the beginning of each phrase in the Colonel Bogey March.
Malcolm Arnold added a counter-march called The River Kwai March, used in the film The Bridge on the River Kwai. The two marches are often confused, especially as Colonel Bogey is also used in the film.
This piano arrangement of the Colonel Bogey March is fantastic to play! You can learn it with our Synthesia piano tutorial, or from our official Sheet Music Boss sheet music at the top of the description!
