Words cannot grasp how happy and thrilled I when I listened to my daughter's first ever song!!! It was entitled "when I Feel So Sad" and it sounded like a mixture of R&B (her #1 influence is ne-yo) and Pop combined into one.It sounded like a love song but she claims that it was a song she wrote for me. I remember starting composing songs when I was in high school. I was really surprised that she just created one at an early age. I hope I can help her hone her talents even more... Let's hope for the best...

Hi balasri, Thank you for the motivation. Just today i took home the guitar I brought for her because their final exams were over! As she promised, she ended up in Top 5 among the awardees. Their school adviser said there are also surprise awards for her during the Recognition day this Friday. So as i promised her... she will have to hold her long time dream... her own guitar!

That is good that your child is showing some talent at such a young age. She may even be emulating you when you compose your songs during your daily routine. I cannot start to imagine how thrilling it would be. But I am sure you are very very happy now. Got a camcorder? Record it down and keep it as a momento!

Thank you so much ahgong. You never knew how delighted I am with this response. I guess when I was still conceiving, I was also composing songs, writing novels and making poems at that time. I already bought her a guitar coz that is her wish ever since she was 4 years old. I told her if she ended Grade 3 with honors, I will buy her a guitar. Well, she has an honor! So hello guitar!!! And yes, I have a digicam and it works as a video recorder also. Thank you for this bright idea!

Thats really great. In the age of 8, your child compose a song. I think she have too much interest in music. Please Always encourage her about her singing.
