This weekend, Eden and I drove up to Weber State University, where she received the Junior Division First Place Award for her Composition.
Her composition, called “Ode to Anonymity” was called simple but charming by the judges. I was very thankful to her teacher for working with her toward a composition, and helping her notate and record her composition.
Eden was also asked to play her composition for the music teachers gathered for the luncheon and awards ceremony. Hopefully, the recognition will encourage her to continue composing. She thinks of herself as a music teacher and performer, but sometimes doesn’t wish to reach out into other areas. This award helps her see that she does have that capability.
