Portrait of a Kid is Philip Michael Minnis’ musical representation of young musicians “getting in the zone.” In his own words, it tells the story of young performers getting “a certain look in their eyes, a determination and focus takes over, you can see it and in that moment they ARE the music.” Fast paced rhythms and intricate syncopations help create the overall feeling of excitement in this engaging and lively piece! Portrait of a Kid comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.
