Composer Biography:

Louis-Claude Daquin was a French composer born in Paris, France on July 4, 1694. Louis was talented from a very young age. At the age of 12 he was a professional organist. Because Louis was a extraordinary organist, he had become an organist for the king of France in 1739. He was a very good composer with the gentle charm touch. He was also a very neat composer, which many admired. He was very famous in France. Long after, Louis passed away. He died in 1772, still living in Paris, France.

Information about my song:


Processional is a very interesting piece of music. The word itself means a ceremonial flow of cars that were a part of the ceremony. Also, John Tyndall made Louis Claude Daquin's Processional playable for the flute.

What I enjoyed:

I enjoyed a lot of things in this project. I really enjoyed playing with smart music. I can sometimes end up going my own pace instead of what the piece wants me to. I liked how if you got lost you could pause it and restart. I also enjoyed researching about the composer. Most of the time people just play the piece and don't even consider who "invented" the song or who arranged the song so we could play it. If we could do this for all the songs we play, I would really enjoy that.
