On Friday, January 13th Dr. Garrop, Mr. Francavilla’s wife, came to talk to the Middle Schoolers about what it’s like to be a composer. She talked about the first thing she had ever composed. She said her music teacher told her to write a song for the trumpet, and so she did. She said, “If my teacher hadn’t told me to write that song I don’t think I would be doing this today.” Dr. Garrop has gone on to write many different pieces. She has also written music about many different things like Medusa, the Sirens, and so much more. She has been very successful and she owes it all to her teachers. I think it was an amazing experience to hear her talk. The way she talked was so inspiring. I hope to hear her talk again soon.
