As I wrote in my last blog, my daughter just graduated from middle school. It definitely feels like there has been a transition in the family as I now have two high school students living in the house.
When my son graduated from middle school three years ago (feels like yesterday), I composed a spontaneous piano piece for him to celebrate the occasion (it is now on my ‘Glimmerings’ album and is titled ‘Commencement’). I was inspired to do the same for my daughter, and I composed a piece on the piano that I have named ‘Dancing with my Daughter.’ This piece is special in that it is composed with two piano tracks which I have never done before (there is also a third piano that comes in near the end)! The first piano symbolizes my daughter dancing and the second piano is me, her mother, who comes in to accompany and support her. They play together and finally dance in harmony at the end which is my favorite part.
I played the piece for my daughter and am happy she enjoyed it. She had a smile on her face when the song finished.
Below is the piece ‘Dancing with my Daughter’:
