Program Notes

The Little Feet March is in dedication to my oldest son, Aiden Little. The reason it is entitled Little Feet is obviously because of our last name but more namely to signify hearing little feet pitter-patter around our house as our son would go about his day.

The piece is sectioned into our son's daily process as he was growing up as a toddler which includes the following: Morning Play Time, Lunch Time, Trouble, Bath, Clean Up, Bedtime Story, No Sleep When Told, Dad Enters the Room/Lights Out. For those who may have children or have relatives that are children, they should be able to relate to the everyday happenings of a child's day which is simple to them but memorable for the guardians. The piece offers playful and light passages that capture the innocence of a child's imagination and playful youth and also a very turbulent whirlwind of lower brass rumbling like thunder and woodwind chromaticism to mimic rain to signify mischief. The piece ends with melodic material extracted from It's a Small World (After All) which is synonymous with Disney as my son would love to sign lullabies and children's songs throughout the day. As humans, we only live a childhood once, and I wanted to immortalize our son's childhood through music.
