Young Composers

Our piano teacher asked Kieran and Kiffanie (ages 6 & 7) to make up a song or two, then she brought her tape recorder to record their original compositions.  Last week she returned having transcribed their songs to paper!

Kiffanie wrote, “The Dragon and the Princess” to be played, “adagio con espressivo” (Which describes Kiffanie quite well.)

Keeping to similar era, Kieran composed, “In Medieval Times…AARRR”  to be played “andante con Rubato.”  Yes, Kieran is totally “con rubato” and andante is very much his speed.   I love the ending–it really brings out the “Aarrr!” from the title!

And on a totally different note, Kieran’s “Butterflies” in 3/2 time, complete with lyrics (also by Kieran):

  1. Amazing! I’m forty-something and can only knock out Mary and her lamb. I’d love to hear them play their pieces.
