Family Suite

My project during 2008 was writing a suite of diverse pieces, one for each member of the family, trying to capture their individual personalities in the music. It was impossible to keep the family from hearing the pieces as they were being written and recorded, but I loved seeing and hearing the reactions on Christmas as they each opened their personalized sheet music and CD of the entire collection and realized which piece was theirs. The Family Suite includes Boomerang, Bridge to Tomorrow, Drifting, Lilypad Lullaby, March of the Rubber Duckies, Un Poco Loco, Walk the Dog, and Zero to Sixty.
