Program Notes From the Inside Out was written for the students at Gurrie Middle School in LaGrange, Illinois. The students continually begged for a body percussion piece, but my focus for them was developing stick technique. I wrote this piece as the perfect compromise. The students get to explore movement and rhythm through the opening body percussion section and then make their way through many of the basic rudiments that are critical to playing percussion.
