Description
(I apologize for uploading another song so soon after my last upload, but this needed to be done this weekend!)


Simple and sweet. Written for a 2 year old, so don't expect anything too complex!


My niece, Abbi Rose, turns 2 tomorrow, December 7th. I promised her when she was born that I would write her a song for every birthday. Last year she got a lullaby. This year she gets this - a very special dance song for a very special little princess. So this is Princess Abbi's Winter Waltz.


I'm not asking for comments or faves on this one - just hoping it puts a smile on your face and a little warmth in your heart this holiday season. A simple gift to all of you, whether you be dancing princesses or sugar plum fairies (or even mischievous little elves!).


UPDATE: This piano piece has now been turned into a wonderful collaboration with magnatone called "A Tale of Two Pianos". Check it out here!

Abbi's eyes...
They melt your heart. What a sweet little girl. She deserves an aunt who gives her a song to dance to.

Gorgeous piano with the sustain pedal, makes it ring like a bell. The cowbells made me smirk. Great waltz!

ttfn,
Drakonis (sorry, I had to comment!)

Perfect Holiday Song
Very beautiful I am on the sled ride coming to a welcoming house in the snow. What an adorable child. The presence of children just make the Christmas season for me.

Sweet and simple
I like the touches of different percussion you included. They add some excitement and humor. Abbi is lucky to have such a talented aunt! This sounds like it's just right for putting on a skirt and spinning 'round and 'round until you're dizzy and you fall down.

This music was all that you promised her. What a sweet and precious soul she must be! The smile and warmth are gratefully received. Thank you dear lady. Terry.

A lovely ocean!
That's what I'm hearing, Kassia - and seeing as how you're so close to that beautiful Pacific, maybe some of that rolling worked its way into this tune. Abbi is a blessed and beautiful girl. Here's another one for my Kassia playlist - whoo-hoo!

Winter Waltz

I find it interesting and positive this music for a 2 years old girl is not "happy funny joy all is well" music :-)
It's not sad either it has energy and a kind of security
feel in it .

I listened...
...when you first posted this number, Shay. What a sweet little piano piece. And, yes, the number does put a smile on my face. I have 5 little grandchildren who love listening to music like this very much and they will definitely hear your little number written for Abbi...(Beautiful photo, btw.) It is so much fun to write music for a special child. Don't stop.
Peace.
