One of the things that I have been trying to encourage with our young pianists is composing songs. Elly, who is 9 years old, was given several blank measures of manuscript paper, a Halloween theme, and told to write her song in 4/4 timing. This is the result, her first song writing endeavor, Haunted House. Great job Elly! Looking forward to more of Elly and other students’ musical creations.
