    This is my favorite solo I have played so far, as a senior in high school. Brilliant melodic writing and extraordinary musical potential throughout. An excellent solo that is enjoyable to listen to, learn, and perform!

    I loved this piece. It was challenging to learn, but it is open to so many different sounds and expressions. Use your creativity. I am planning on playing this in my Junior (half) recital for my Percussion Performance undergraduate degree.
