A Year To Remember
“A Year to Remember” was composed for my 2022 – 2023 Bayonne High School Honors Guitar Ensemble. I wanted to write a piece of music that would accentuate my students’ technical abilities as well as push them to a higher level of playing together. It also had to immediately hook my students’ ears and be fun to play. I gave the piece a lighter pop vibe by keeping the harmony simple and I tried to make the melodies catchy. The piece is very rhythmic and syncopated, and it helps teach ensemble members to listen to each other while playing. I hope your ensemble enjoys playing it as much as we did.
