This is my first song-a-week entry, called Get Up Eat Breakfast Get Dressed Go to School. I decided to mess around with low horns. As a result, it's not easy to mix as the instruments all operate in more or less the same range. It's not Professional Mix-a-Week, anyway.
I was reading something Laurie Spiegel said about being at a conservatory:
[John Duarte said] I should practice by writing a piece every day, no matter how short or simple. I did my best to comply…Later, at Juliard, I was shocked at how students were allowed to work on a single piece all year, while I was paying my tuition by composing an educational filmstrip every month.
Given that I have more convenient tools than she did in the '60s and '70s, as well as lower standards, I figured I should be able to write a song a week for a while.
