Welcome to my webpage!   I hope you enjoy browsing through my book selections, listening to my music and reading my story.  I am 13 years old, and I have been playing the violin since I was 3.   I also play piano and cello...and the recorder and tin whistle!   Sometimes, I compose.  This midi file is a Tango I wrote for piano!
