My Pieces

Hey guys! I'm new to this group and I figured I might as well put my music out there now! I am a percussionist and am most prominent in writing for mallet percussion, but I also love to write for band, choir, and musical theater! Feel free to check them all out and give me feedback.

Original Mallet Percussion Quartet/Quintet Pieces

Hey guys!
I joined this group a little while ago and forgot that I never posted a discussion, lol. I've been officially composing music for about four years now and I'm the principal percussionist of my high school. I've written a mallet quartet piece called "The Ticking Clock" which was accepted into a state composer's competition during my sophomore year; I went back later and wrote a follow up to that piece called "The End", which is a mallet quintet piece that has never been played before. Eventually, I'd like to write more of these mallet compositions and turn them into one conjoined piece or something! Let me know what you think!

20th January Musical Cryptogram

My friends sometimes ask me to translate his or her name into a musical composition. I must confess that I love these activities as it forces you to make a melodic line out of it. So my challenge is:

Make a piece of music out of a name (can be anyone's)
Pieces should be longer than one minute and less than 3 minutes.
If those who are confused in how to use cryptograms then here is one way you could do this (French method):

I would judge your pieces based on originality, how beautiful it is and bonus if difficult names are used. 
Please in your titles that you need to state the name of the person
The winner will have their piece upvoted and will be followed by me.

Here is an example where the piece uses a musical cryptogram:
