When I began composing this song, I started with a motif- the few notes of melody on which a song is based. Next, I messed around on the keyboard until elaborated the melody, added a B section, and returned to the original motif. Finally, my piano teacher helped me add the left-hand harmony.
When I was choosing the title for my piece, I tried to think of something that sounded dreamy and warmly peaceful. If I had to describe this composition to a hearing impaired person, I would probably describe it as a mellow, buttery yellow, soothing and relaxed.
