Hello lovely Patrons! I wish you all a very peaceful and happy new year! I’ve spent the morning playing the solo piano version of ‘Initial Bond’, which is the music I wrote for my Dad, incorporating his initials into the melody. The music I wrote on the piano encompasses the whole range of the piano and was very different in style to my other piano pieces. So much so, I asked a concert pianist, John Thomson, to record it for me on my album, ‘Between Worlds’.
Yesterday would have been my Dad’s 90th birthday, had he lived, and so I felt inspired to play this music through. It’s quite a handful of notes! However, since I’ve been upping my game on the piano, I’ve decided to practise the music and play it myself, going forward. I asked for the music of the complete works of Chopin for Christmas, so this will be good training!
I do feel as though my vocation is to write music for people, it’s such a special and personal thing to do. I’ve started a piece for my mom, who was 90 recently.
Today, my ‘Red Right Hand’ single is released! This is another exciting venture! I feel that there is just so much to do! This month, I’ll also be working on a video for Trevor, and this year I will be arranging a special piece of music for Edna.
The day started out quite dark and rainy, but by the time I’d finished playing, the sun was streaming through the window and lighting up the music on the piano! A good omen I hope! Lots of love to you all, and here’s to a productive and inspiring year ahead! xxx
