Composition

Part of Grace's music instruction is the requirement that all students submit original music pieces for an international Music for Young Children competition each year.  Grace and Kyle worked on this song called "After the Rain" that came from Grace's idea to write a song about a rainbow.  It is short, but appropriate for her age and experience level...and, it was HARD to write and figure out how the make the music match the ideas they had in their minds.
Grace's teacher will send her work in to the competition exactly as you see it here.  The children have to write the notes themselves on the paper given to them by their teacher.  Did you know Mozart composed his first piece when he was just five, too?
