Program Notes

Stealth is a great exploration of both dynamic contrast and differing musical styles for young musicians. A light, sneaky melody draws the audience in before a strong, heavy note "sneaks" up on the audience; it may remind listeners of sneaking a midnight snack before being caught in the act! A catchy melody makes this piece enjoyable for all. As this piece deals with dynamic contrast, make it a challenge with your musicians to see how quietly they can play the piano dynamics. Conversely, see how much volume they can get on the forte sections while still keeping a good sound; proper embouchure and air support for each instrument is crucial to making the upper dynamics work well.
