Ko se začne pomlad – Wenn der Frühling beginnt [Sheet music]

I came up with this song in the first weeks of spring this year and it translates to “When spring begins”. Hopefully none of it comes from any existing song that I’ve heard before. I hope I might come up with more in the future, as it’s a very interesting and new experience.

This song is suitable for intermediate levels. If anyone happens to learn it, I’d love to hear it! 😍
