Performed by Elizabeth Kiswani
Used with permission from Beth West, composer and teacher.
My piano teacher has taught me to arrange music and to compose piano pieces, which I have come to love. I admire my teacher’s creativity and passion for music. Her compositions have been an inspiration to me. I didn’t think I was capable of composing music, but she showed me how to do this step by step. I enjoy it and look forward creating to more. I also like arranging because it enables me to incorporate my own style to the intro, bridge, and ending of a piece. Arranging and composing have made a difference in my piano playing because it has encouraged me to be creative and expressive.
The song I played for this issue was written by my teacher, Ms. West. You can learn more about Beth West Music at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6yYosxfgVrTdB-YPFVzZ5g?app=desktop
