Music

Come Discover, Come Explore

13737615_628206700676103_5225803938131753456_oHere it is- my first piece, written June of 2014!  I’m looking forward to periodically sharing music that I have written in the past few years, as well as pieces that I am currently working on.

As an introduction, it seemed fitting to share part of an email that I wrote to my Grannie and Grandad (Crawford and Georgia Gates) soon after completing “Come Discover, Come Explore”:

“Grannie and Grandad,

I wanted you to have a copy of my first composition!  🙂  I was asked to write a piece for Emily’s (my sister, Emily Shill) Preschool Curriculum that she wants to market someday (see http://www.livemovegrow.com/).  Her premise is “Come discover and explore things that live, move and grow.”  She wanted it to be a bouncy song for 3 year old’s.  Other than that, she left it up to me.  I hesitated when she asked me, as this journey is just at the beginning for me!!!  However, I decided this could be the perfect opportunity to grow.  So I took the challenge, and within three weeks had a full song that I was very proud of.  I have a lot to learn, there is no doubt; but there is also no doubt that there is much more inside me than I had previously supposed!”

(My Grandparents have spent their life immersed in music and have been valuable mentors.  For more information about my Grandfather’s music, visit http://crawfordgates.com/)

Here is a link to the recording (or directly access all of my recordings under the “Music” category above)- enjoy!
