I began studying trombone about two years ago, and last Spring I played in the Gordon College wind ensemble, which was a lot of fun. The director Dr David Rox, suggested that I write a piece for band, so I started arranging some children's piano pieces by Bartok. This gradually developed into a twelve-minute band piece, the first I have written since high school. I think it's an entertaining piece, rather extroverted in tone. Dr Rox is interested in performing it, we'll see.
