Recommended Listening: Emily Bear - Northern Lights

This one's just amazing. Why? Because the pianist/composer you're listening to here was 7 years old when she composed this. Watch the right hand as it creates the mood for the entire piece right away! A quick little ostinato pattern is played in the right while she adds in a bass melody.

But she's not done here. Contrast is introduced now as the left hand gets the ostinato pattern. She returns to a 'modified' version of her original idea a bit later.

If I hadn't known she was 7, I'd think this was done by a mature adult. As I said before ... amazing! Find Emily's website at http://emilybear.com/index2.html
