<strong>Ready</strong> <strong>to</strong> <strong>Fly</strong> represents a parallel between young birds and young developing musicians. Just as<br />

edglings learn <strong>to</strong> use their voices <strong>to</strong> make the beautiful bird sounds we all know and love, young<br />

musicians develop a familiarity with the language of music and learn <strong>to</strong> communicate and inspire<br />

through sound.<br />

The melodies in this piece were inspired by real bird calls: the charming and easily-recognizable two-note<br />

call of the black-capped chickadee, and the musical fanfare-like three-note call of the red-winged<br />

blackbird. I was also inspired by songbirds in the construction of the piece, using layering and call &<br />

response sections <strong>to</strong> imitate antiphonal bird calls.<br />

In working on this project, I felt strongly about creating a piece that contributes <strong>to</strong> both musical and<br />

social-emotional growth of students at this level. My hope is that this piece will empower students of all<br />

levels <strong>to</strong> feel “ready <strong>to</strong> y” in their musical and personal pursuits.<br />

This piece was commissioned by Tammy Wahlin for Robbinsdale Area Schools, with support from the<br />

Seven Dreams Education Foundation. This project was made possible thanks <strong>to</strong> the generous support of<br />

Marlene Johnson, who has asked <strong>to</strong> dedicate this piece in memory of her brother, Arnold Johnson, who was<br />

a lover of birds. Marlene and Arnold are both graduates of Robbinsdale high schools.
