New Simplified Sheet Music

A lot of beginning piano players and teachers have been asking me for easy sheet music renditions of some of my more popular pieces.  I decided that I would chose ten pieces and see if I could create simplified versions so that beginning pianists could enjoy successfully performing my music.

Try out this free download of “Peaceful.” I would love to know what you think. And if you like it, there are nine other pieces available on my website.

The Northwest Compassion Tour 2019

This fall, I will be touring the Northwest performing fifteen concerts in seventeen days. The reason why I am calling this tour a “Compassion” tour  is because my mission has recently changed. My new official mission is “to create a more compassionate world by promoting love, peace, joy & gratitude through music.” These higher emotions have helped me be more understanding, more caring, kinder and more concerned about the needs of other people. It is with great joy and gratitude that I announce the following concert dates:

What’s With All the Hearts? Seven New Solo Piano Singles for 2019

People have been asking me why all of the new singles I am releasing have hearts on the covers. Easy answer: they will all be put out as an album once they are all released as singles. The album will be entitled, “Heartfelt Solo Piano.” Then they ask, “Why are you bothering to put them out as singles when you can just put out an album?” And I tell them that it is because you get much more action on Spotify to release each single separately as Spotify offers to promote each single. They encourage artists to release singles by doing this. If I put an album out, I am only able to promote one song. The rest of the tracks will be overlooked. When I put out singles, I can promote each single separately and hope that they will add the track to a Spotify playlist or will promote it through “Release Radar” or “Spotify Radio.” Also, these days, most people don’t buy albums/CDs, except at concerts. New cars don’t have CD players anymore and most computers no longer have CD drives. Below are singles covers of the tracks that have been released and two that will be released by April 1st.

 

Pure Joy – Live at Piano Haven released 12/18/2018

YOU CAN STREAM THIS MUSIC ON SPOTIFY, PANDORA, and APPLE MUSIC.
YOU CAN ALSO DOWNLOAD ON AMAZON, AND BANDCAMP,

This was an audience participation improvisation that occurred in a concert on November 4, 2018 at Joe Bongiorno‘s Piano Haven Studio. People were asked to pick three notes, from A – G. The notes F, A, C were chosen. Then people were asked to choose a feeling. The feeling chosen was “Joy.” With that, this piece of music was born. Special thanks to Joe Bongiorno at Piano Haven Studio for the fantastic video and audio.

“Foreign Lands” – Release date 3/18/2019

I was taking a spiritual journey to foreign lands while playing piano in the comfort of my home studio. It is about traveling and exploring new territory with eyes wide open. I think it works on the physical level of going to another country and it also works for internal exploration. It’s peaceful, comforting and mysterious as well.

“Have No Fear” – release date 4/1/2019
