This is the best time of year for me to sit at the piano and compose (most often in my pyjamas!). It’s a dark morning and the rain is lashing against the windows, I’m armed with both cups of tea and coffee, and I’m brimming with ideas!
I’ve written music for my dad and nan, and for my friend Veronica. I’ve composed two pieces of music for Edna, with a third piece waiting in the wings. I feel so inspired creating music for people! My mom was 90 this year, and yesterday I had the idea of writing some music for her, and this morning I’ve created the theme by translating her name ‘Dorothy’ into music notes. My mom and I have had the kind of relationship that many moms and daughters have, we have really had our ups and downs over the years, but this year we have become very close and we bought her a keyboard for her birthday and I’ve started teaching her the piano! Music has the power to heal and to bring happiness into people’s lives. Thank you for supporting me and I promise you will have the Red Right Hand MP3 next! I was just excited to let you know that I’m writing something new! X
