Sonatina in F Minor

February 24th, 2019 by

So I wrote my first song on my new keyboard controller for my PC. I used a program called Reaper and some VST (synthetic) instruments that came with my piano keyboard. Overall it turned out pretty well.

I thought I was writing the piece in C Minor right up till the end because that’s what key it started in but I know its in F Minor now (funny how chromatic chords can mess you up). I expect to start writing music for The Super Rocket soon, unless I think of another reason to procrastinate 😁!

Now I’m not sure if it’s right to call this piece a sonatina but it has a recurring a section and kinda a development section in the middle so I’ll call it that.

Originally I wrote the piano piece first and chose the flute to go along with the piano because me and my sister Grace used to play pieces together (her on the flute and me on the piano), though that happened only every looong once in a while. Anyways, I enjoyed playing on this keyboard and I’m sure it will serve me well for years to come.

I would like to try out some real sampled instruments sometime. I’m even considering recording my piano parts for The Super Rocket on my parents grand piano, but that’s just a dream (I may end up using different instruments).
