Program Notes:

Journey to Jordan is a percussion ensemble I composed for my middle school students a few years ago.  In crafting the piece, I wanted the main melody to be very lyrical and I wanted the “hit spots” of the song to be strong and forceful. My intention of the piece is for young percussionists to have a percussion ensemble that teaches some basic ensemble fundamentals, yet entertaining and fun for the kids to play. 

Journey to Jordan is dedicated to my son, Jordan.  

Thanks to David Barani for recording this!
