Before moving from Michigan to Arizona, I wrote a piece of music for each of my piano students that I was leaving behind. Freight Train No. 5 was written in the spring of 2002 for Sarah Morgan and premiered by Sarah Morgan in our May recital.

The majority of the piece is in 5/4, and each hand only plays perfect fifths.  Of all my pieces written for students, this is the one most often requested by other teachers and my students.
