Program Notes

Commissioned by the “School Band Project” of the 20th Kyo-En Executive Committee, this work was designed to provide quality educational music for school bands. This accessible piece can be used to work on “beautiful tone production, timbre, and articulation” and “dynamics, singing melody, and musical structure”. Many school bands struggle with varied dynamics and ensemble balance, detached melodic lines and rough articulation, creating unbalanced timbre, pitch and harmony. I hope this composition helps remedy some of these challenges.
