One of my long-time students, Nishi, is a wonderful composer and video editor, as well as continuing her path as an accomplished young harpist. I always encourage my students to explore their own music as soon as they put their hands on their harps. Writing the music in notation comes later, and recording videos is a great way to not only publish finished musical pieces, but as a composition tool in and of itself.
This is Nishi’s first original composition, SONG OF LIFE, that she decided to release. Many other micro compositions lead to this beautiful finished video.
Nishi learned Sibelius, specialized music notations software, and has provided sheet music for SONG OF LIFE for other upper beginning and intermediate harpists to play.
Nishi has also created two additional videos, both also her own compositions: MEMORIES and A THIEF.
