My music teacher gave me the idea for the tittle” The Music from My Village”. I began my piece with simple notes and I started with a violin. As I started coming up with different notes I got an idea for other instruments too. It starts with using a violin witch gives it a smooth sound but then I added more instruments from the background so that each could connect. I have 26 measures and I used a violin, cello, flute, bassoon, clarinet and french horn. In some notes i used repetition and variation. I learned that by making different notes and coming up with different sounds its amazing how you can create your own music. You can mess around a little with the instruments and notes untill you like how it sounds. My piece is dedicated to Matt and Cristina Cobo for helping me out in creating my first composition.
