Program Notes:
In 2021, I was diagnosed with ADHD, I was 24 years old. I started having my first symptoms of ADHD when I was about five years old. I was always told I was the kid who was always daydreaming and never paying attention. As I got older and moved through middle school, high school, and college, I had to create different tactics to be able to go through my life as normal as possible. This caused me to develop other mental illnesses because of my ADHD being untreated. I composed this piece to explain my struggles through music to be able to better process my own emotions about it.


In the five sections of this piece I pull out the emotions I have been holding on to of anger, embarrassment, and shamefulness. Moving on through those emotions has been really difficult for me. Through the music I push all those emotions out with loud and aggressive motifs then quickly move to beautiful soft sections to show the opposite side of myself and how I am working through it.


The entire piece as well plays on the humor of ADHD/ADD. Quickly moving from one section to highlight the consistent forgetfulness, day-dreamy, and distracted way of people who have this neurodiversity.
