Hi! I wrote/arranged this piece for the Lake Travis High School Indoor Marching Percussion for their show entitled Ghibli. Very challenging drum parts, source material is the soundtrack to the movie Spirited Away.

Look, some of the rhythms were really cool but:

1. it felt more as if it should appear at the end of a piece, more of a final. You didn't give the material enough time to sink into the listener's ears.

I do know "one summer's day", and yet I felt as if you... just didn't use it enough.

2. The feeling of the original piece... I'd at least make some part with a smoother... jazz-like feeling or something.

I mean, it should be way calmer than that. Usually in Gihbli movies where the percussionists get to express themselves the thematic materials are almost gone.

And you chose a piece full of calm thematic material.

Shouldn't you use something more like... this?
