Hi i'm Junaid. I'm 15 years old and live in Melbourne. I love music and drama and have really been getting into composition in the last year or so. I play the flute and piano and have been learning for six years or so. I have also been in the John Antill Youth Band (which is part of the MYO organisation) for four or five years. I really hope to become an actor and composer in the future and until then I plan on just having fun learning as much about music as I can.
I was originally inspired when my sister started learning Gymnopedie No.1 and I started around with a similar style. For a few months I improvised around an idea and slowly developed the piece. When I got the ability to record with midi I recorded the piano part and added a simple string accompaniment and bass. The strings weren't that interesting though and I came back to the piece months later and changed the strings to clarinet and bassoon and changed how they harmonised which really made the piece come to life.
