Eddie's First Musical Composition

© Copyright 2009, Edward M. Harris. All Rights Reserved.

Last Christmas, Becky and I gave Eddie a music notebook full of blank musical scores, hoping to encourage him in his musical talents. Over the past few weeks, he's been toiling away at the piano, quite literally, hammering out different chords and phrasing, over and over again. I finally cottoned on to what he was doing. He was composing!

I am so proud now to be able to show you Eddie's very first original composition. This piece is called "Waltz of Roses" and was written completely by Edward Harris, aged eleven.

That's really, really good, Eddie! I'm so proud of you. Musician and composer, singer and... spongwriter? Is that next? Maybe there's a lyricist in the house :) Great job, Eddie!

Great job Mozart, I mean Eddie! Maybe you should ask Luke to add some lyrics. I hear he has a knack for that! Keep up the good work, and I'll make sure you don't have to take care of Nana in her old age.
