This Little Suite is a arranged for five parts and percussion. The instruments, and the number of people on each part can be flexibly organized according to the actual situation of the band. It is important to have the freedom to expand musical ideas and themes of music itself. In this sense, I made this piece a creative source for musicians. I imagine it to be a picture book. For each song, musicians can freely derive images from the titles. Anything from everyday things to dreams and fantasies, musically elaborate on it! For example:

"I. On the Cloud" - What kind of cloud and where do you go on that cloud?
"II. Sentimental Moment" - What happened and why?
In "IV. Leaf Lullaby" - leaves are scattered in the wind like a lullaby.

It is possible to change an octave depending on best instrument range.
In particular, for brass ensemble, please consider the range and balance between parts and phrases.
