Last week I was excited to read the email confirming that I had received a distinction for my compositions called 'Spanish Jollity' and 'Fun with Funk'. Tommy Fowler, my tutor, said that there is a lot of my personality coming across in the music I compose. The two compositions are very happy and lively. 'Spanish Jolity' is inspired by a fiesta atmosphere and uses a fast and slow dance style. 'Fun with Funk', makes the listener feel that they are at a disco with it's happy uptempo beat and cheerful motifs in the electric piano and synth parts. I hope I can achieve such successful results in the future and maybe even compose a concerto!
