Student Bios for Youth Music Competition 2016

Knoxville Songwriter, Emma Rowe, a music-themed gift company, held its 3rd Annual Youth Composition and Songwriter Competition for ages 10 thru 18, with scores and recordings submitted on-line. Volunteer judges are music professionals, who review the students’ entries not only for prize placement, but with an aim to provide encouraging constructive comments. The competition is divided into 2 categories, Composition and Songwriter, each with a junior and senior division.

Two local students entered with impressive work, Emma Rowe, Junior Songwriter and Samuel Aba, Senior Composition. Emma won a 2nd place in the Junior Songwriting category.

I had the joy of meeting Emma in person to deliver her certificate. She and her 2 younger sisters were on their way to a Daddy Daughter camping trip.

Emma Rowe

Emma is a 12 year old rising eighth grader. This fun, active girl loves many different styles of writing! She sings, acts and helps write shows for the musical theater troupe she has been with for five years.  Emma studies writing in her homeschooling co-op. She was the 2014 First Runner-up in the National World War II Museum Essay Contest. Emma is currently writing two books, one a non-fiction story set in an area of land in Kentucky she saw while on a trip, and another a guide to healthy eating. She hopes to publish both! She loves to read, swim, and play with dogs and cats. Those are only three of the many things Emma enjoys doing! She also entered the Violettes by Becky Music Composing Contest twice, entering an original tune and lyrics both times. Emma is grateful to her friends, family members, and teachers who edit her musical score compositions, lyrics, essays, and books.
