Stats for this track
A new minimalist piece in C major.
So, getting my 6 year old daughter to sit at the piano is basically impossible. I had all but given up that she had a natural interest in music. Then one day she sat at the piano without me interfering and found the sustain pedal. She's not tall enough to sit and reach the pedal so she stood on the pedal and reached up to the keys and suddenly she got very serious.
And she wrote this.
I've got little numbers on the keys for middle C octave as a way to teach her to get comfortable reading without the worry of learning the staff. So she took pen and paper and wrote the numbers down.
Of course I had a grin ear to ear and had to force myself to not say anything lest I ruin the moment. I slowly turned on the recording equipment but by then she was done. I had to coax her to do a repeat performance and amazingly she was very close to the way she played it the first time.
