Ask 6-year-old Alani Green her favorite song and she won’t answer “Yellow Submarine” or “I Like to Move It.” She likes “Piggy Piggy Piggy,” a song her dad, Clarence Green, made up for his kids, Alani and Tashi, 3, to dance to.

Music plays a big role in the Green household. Clarence is the singer/songwriter for local band The Downbeat Project, and has used music his whole life as a way to release and connect with people.

Now he’s passing on that musical appreciation to Alani, who practices on the pink guitar she received as a Christmas gift a few years ago. Still, Clarence said, “She likes to dance to my music more than play along.”
