Rain drummed, children shouted, and the chord of G minor filled the room. Side by side at the piano, two cousins wrote a song. After piecing together the various ideas and adding in some lyrics, “Guilty Rain” was born. I’d love for you to take a listen!
Here’s an original poem I wrote while sitting in a coffee shop in Colorado. I hope you enjoy it!
Hello, All! How has your week gone so far? Are you enjoying spring? Last week for my birthday, I was given a MIDI controller, which is like a tiny, bluetooth keyboard. (Thanks a bunch, Mom and Dad!)

This way, the […]
Hello, Folks! What’s your favorite thing about this week so far? This week, I’d love to share a quick little poem I wrote called “Judge”, which muses on the tendency we humans have to bear a grudge. I hope you find it thought-provoking and enjoyable!

Since poetry is even better read aloud, I made a recording of the poem as well. I hope you enjoy it, and may it give rise to deep thoughts and poetry of your own!
Micah, Anna and I were playing piano. It was a game that I had played with my teacher, where someone tells you a word or scene, and you try to impart that emotion by creating music to describe it. After a while, we were flushed with triumph and enthusiastic at our musical success. “You should write a book about someone who remembers something important in her life every time she plays […]
My cousin Claire and I wrote this silly parody using an ingenious game she created. She drew two papers out of bag filled with options, one with a Christmas song and one with a topic. All that was left was to put the two together. Here’s what we came up with! We hope it brings a smile to your face. 🙂
