When I made up this little melody, I had no idea what it would become. I have spent more hours on this than I can believe. Dale Coates is a great person, musician and band director. I have known him for years and my work on this march was motivated by his love of the woodwind family. The trio of the march features woodwinds and the horn section. This melody came to me so fast that I almost think it is not original. I believe we hear music and those melodies stay with us even though we may have forgotten them. If you know of any of these melodies contained in the march, let me know.
