Jessica HillisBaileySenior Project10 April 2008SpeechProjectArrange a composition of piano music for a clarinet solo with a vibraphoneaccompaniment. My project connects to my career choice because I plan on studyingmusic production and will be required to transpose music from one instrument to anotheror one key to another and any time.EmotionsI experienced a number of emotions while working on my project but the twopredominant emotions were frustration and relief.

I also want to thank Clint Mansell, the composer of the piece “Lux Aeterna”, whichwas the song I used in my project. Without his creative mind and his ability to writebeautiful compositions, it wouldn’t have been near as fun as it was.
