I wrote Three girls for my children when they were toddlers, respectively in 1994, 1996 and 2002. The first piece was written for Grace at a time when she would spend hours playing in the sandpit, suddenly standing up and beginning to walk, and, of course, fall on the ground. The second piece was written for Iris on occasion of her first whims and self-conscious assertions. Helen’s piece was written at a time when she would sleep on a small matress next to the piano while I was playing a lullaby.

The three pieces are equally suited for children and adults perhaps on their third or fourth year of piano study.
