Program Notes

For many of us in this world, some of our closest relationships are made with those furry four-legged trusty sidekicks, our noble companions who stick with us no matter what. This piece takes us on the journey of a curious dachshund, discovering and sniffing out the world at her own pace.

Dachshund Trot is a wonderful way to introduce young players to mixed meter in an easy, laid-back way. The walking “trot” tempo allows beginners to feel at ease while counting in 5/4 time. It also allows players to connect to the piece with their own special friend at home, having meaning to all pet lovers.
