There's A Light

Description
Whilst at primary school, a music teacher took a dislike to me. He used to call me a 'know it all'. "Sly! what are your views being as you are so far ahead of me musically?" Sarcastic all the time and my life made miserable in class!
He asked us all to create a new Christmas Carol/Song as a project one year and I created this. It sort of stuck with me for all these years and only recently came to the fore of my mind during an illness! Needless to say, he loathed it!

There's a light
Up in the sky
Shining so bright for us to feel
It is Christmas...

There's A Light
For a pretty piece to be composed very early on in life is amazing. I would of wished to be musical in those early years, but I always had the pleasure of listening to it.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Patricia
I wrote a lot of music from about 8 yrs on really!
I have always enjoyed creating...starting with a blank canvas.

Thanks Feter
It took me until quite recently to stand up and agree with your statement. My music was kept on a back burner for so long because of the oppressive way in which I have been treated by several people along the way.

In primary school?
I'd almost be willing to bet that your teacher didn't compose anything as lovely as this in primary school. I was barely able to bang two sticks together at that stage. Nicely done, and all best wishes to you.

Hi Richard
His 1st dislike of me came when he heard that I was a choir boy. He would drill my voice in front of the class and I suppose that I made him mad by succeeding!

Those kind of teachers hate it when you do something correctly which they asked you to do: it doesn't leave them room to "improve" you ;-)

Teachers
Few state primary schools have specialist music teachers now, but I remember mine. He liked me, because I was the only boy in the after school recorder group! I can still play it too. [just about]

That you composed this at such a young age is impressive, but that you can remember it is even more so! It's really nice. I'll bet you're pleased he didn't put you off. What did he know anyway?

Thank you
for your lovely comment my friend. Recorders are fun, especially when all the best looking girls are in the group! I remember it well...

I am glad it stuck with you.
Too bad it got negative attention from your teacher. Sometimes we music teachers get crotchety for no good reason. (Although if you had presented this little gem to me, I would have had the students sing it for their concert. It is a very pleasant melody, and although simple, very memorable. Thanks for sharing it with us here. Merry Christmas,
