20th January Musical Cryptogram

My friends sometimes ask me to translate his or her name into a musical composition. I must confess that I love these activities as it forces you to make a melodic line out of it. So my challenge is:

Make a piece of music out of a name (can be anyone's)
Pieces should be longer than one minute and less than 3 minutes.
If those who are confused in how to use cryptograms then here is one way you could do this (French method):

I would judge your pieces based on originality, how beautiful it is and bonus if difficult names are used. 
Please in your titles that you need to state the name of the person
The winner will have their piece upvoted and will be followed by me.

Here is an example where the piece uses a musical cryptogram:

Your submission will be due at 15th February

What are y'all favorite artists/songs?

I really really like Disney music in general. (don't judge even tho I'm a teen) XD. I also like Imagine Dragons and Twenty One Pilots. I don't really have a favorite song tho....... Also, help. I've been bored lately and do y'all have any cheesy/corny jokes? LOL. Follow me on ROBLOX: smartypants0926. I haven't been active lately cause my dad blocked Roblox sooo. But my friend is helping me earn money on certain games while I am gone. CYAAAAA LATer!!! 

My second composition! :)

 Well, that sure was quick.... my second piece... A study for classical/acoustic guitar, the instrument that i really play! Dont be fooled by the simple structure because it is hard, especialy to make a good fingering (probably gonna take some notes out to make it more simple and playable for guitar). Inspired by me i guess...? I just went with my flow and followed a great deal of advice from my first piece. Structure wise i feel it is obvious - A in D locrian (say whhaaaa)/pentatonic minor as well (in some parts) with a modulation to Bb major and a bridge to section B in D minor with a bridge to repeat the study until the coda. Sounds like a boos theme who went to brasil for carnival to me lol.... but idk...well enjoy! :)

A Trumpeter from, Afghanistan.

in Trumpet

Hi everyone this is Qudrat Wasefi  a Trumpet player that is a thousand miles away in Afghanistan.
Afghanistan is war-torn and partly destroyed. 
I am from a country where you can not dream to be musician in such society.
We're so hopeless that even we are accepting this ridiculous thing that looks at the way world is in the 21th century, but our environment is still in the middle ages, so sorry for that.
by the way could you guys help me with the Trumpet addition solos and pieces?
What pieces have you recently played? and are working on now?

best regards;
Qudrat Wasefi
