In May 2022, the Bristow Middle School band premiered a piece I wrote for them called "Trying." The piece was based on their responses to a survey asking, among other things, what they wished the adults in their lives understood. One answer that popped up several times was "I wish they understood that I'm trying my hardest." The piece is about the feeling of being overwhelmed, the desire to find escape, and the ways in which connecting with others and making music can help us cope. Audio/video coming soon!
