Today is not just special because of Valentines day, but because today is also the birthday of
Mandi, the woman whose voice has kept my mind captive for over 5 years now! In her honor I wrote this song to celebrate her this day.

The song itself is much more contemporary classical then what i'm usually accustomed to. I asked her what her favorite woodwind, brass, and string instruments were. She replied, flute, french horn, and violin respectively. So busting out the solo instruments for those 3 in her favorite key I tried to write an empowering and intimate piece fo her. I had never done something of this nature before so I feel I wasn't really as powerful or intricate as I would have liked.

In any case, I hope Newgrounds will join my voice as I wish Mandi, the happiest of days!

Happy birthday.

To the listener, I hope you enjoy this song as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Happiest of days, to Mandi.

For someone as popular and influential as you I'm surprised at the lack of feedback some of your works are getting. Truly your works are those of what I consider a master, added the fact that this was written in favour of someone makes it all that much more masterful. Auf Ihr Fräeulein (I apologize if that got lost in translation). Here's to your damsel.

Can I say something?

Hey, can I say something? Doesn't matter it was a rhetoric question. This piece an amazing calm. The fact itself that you're writing it for SOMEONE should be enough. I myself am trying to make something for any of my friends (not very successfully though) but you beat me in any single point.
Keep the good work, Maestro. I'm sure you'll inspire many and many people in future as in the past.
5/5 and 10/10 (my favorite musician)

MaestroRage responds:

you can say anything you'd like, even if it's rhetorical.

Writing for somebody can be hard but there are a few things you can do to make it easier.

1. Try to write it in the style of song that person likes. If they like pop, write something pop, instrumental is easiest and often just as appreciated.
2. Try to personify the person with your instruments. Mandi here said her favorite woodwind was flute, and truth be told when I think of her I see a flute or piccolo as well. Her personality reminds me of those instruments.
3. Keep it simple. Everybody loves a super master piece in their honor sure, but often times the simplest melodies are the ones which give the strongest message.
4. If all else fails, just have fun and do what you'd normally do. The person will appreciate the attempt and truth be told a lot of my songs I made for friends in my earlier days are rather bad, but if nothing else, it was fun to make and fun to give. One time I even made a completely ridiculous song that was just stupid in every way I could think of, which became an inside joke for a long while, giving us laughs for months.

Hope that helps, and thank you for the review, i'm glad you liked it!

So...calming

A master piece.
Truly a great song, keep up the good work!

Love it! The melody sounds so sweet!

Greatest song today I has listened on NG! I love the violins and the flutes!!
I see, you are in love with the lady that co-operating with you!
Whatever, I feel so lonely today...

MaestroRage responds:

I do very much love her indeed. Her voice and talents have been an inspiration from day one and continue to inspire me. I hope we can work together as a team for many more years to come!

Thanks for the review, i'm glad you liked it!
