Her Piano Sang

Writing Fun!

Dear Boys and Girls,
You probably already know that a biography is a story about the life of a person, written by another person. I wrote about a musical person--Clara Schumann. I guess you could call it a musical biography.

Do you know what an autobiography is? Auto means self. So an autobiography is the story of a person's life written by that person.

Have some fun writing a musical autobiography. You can write about anything in your life that has something to do with music. For example: Tell about your earliest musical memory. Was it hearing someone sing to you? Do you remember playing rhythm instruments at school? Maybe it was watching a marching band in a parade. Or listening to your big sister's CDs.

Why do you remember it? What feelings do you have when you think of it? Do you think it changed you? In what way?
