The Moment

Malayna Johnson

Grade 12, Harwood Union High School, Duxbury, VT

"This piece is very different from the pieces I usually write. Its purpose is to create a whole world of relaxation, comfort and support. I titled this piece The Moment because each instrument is given its own special moment and part that essentially contributes its own musical line of support and comfort to the entire piece. When you listen, you can pick out which line belongs to which instrument as it moves along. When I listen to this song (and I encourage you to try this as well) I put myself in an open field, where it’s quiet, calm and I can set all my worries aside. It’s a moment of stillness and silence. It’s the moment just for you."
