Rachel's composition

This is my daughter, Rachel, who will one day accept a Grammy or Tony award. She's seen quite a few Broadway musicals and we recently took her to see Little Shop of Horrors at the Ford Theater in Washington D.C. During intermission, she pointed to the musicians up on the elevated platform at the back of the stage and said, "That's what I want to do."

Rachel is all of eleven years old, and she composed the music and lyrics to Library Song. She performed it at the Rockaway Township Library Talent Show last week.

Many thanks to Mr. Mazzarella, her guitar teacher for helping her tweak it. She does have a "big finish" to this song, but as she herself stated, chickened out at the end. I personally like, "Thank you Boston!"

I'm awful proud of her.
