Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To continue my personal study of the orchestral instruments, especially the woodwinds which is an area of weakness for my current knowledge. My main goal is to produce a composition that I can be proud to share with the community and any future orchestras that would care to perform this new work. Simply put, we will start with a ''blank'' score and finish with a well-crafted original composition with a performance length of 5-10 minutes. I will also survey the orchestra students to invite their feedback on the experience.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The resulting work was approximately 15 minutes long with three movements. Feedback from the orchestra was positive.
