Piano Solo called, Thinking Of You. Music and piano solo By Jennifer M. Stevens.
~Rough Draft~ Works in progress... Litterally recording one of my composition sessions; Composing as we speak.
Spontaneous recording...piano melodies came to me a week before Christmas and wrote the main melodies in one sitting-15 minutes. My melodies are always changing until I complete my song. :) I was trying to complete for Christmas. Recorded with my camera facing a window so you could hear the wind caressing the tall oak trees...Sounded and looked so beautiful to me.
