A Thing A Week - 2016 - Week 34 - Waiting for Solo Piano

Hey Everybody,

I've decided I want to release an album of solo piano pieces sometime this fall/winter. I figure the best way to get this thing composed is to just start making a ton of solo piano music and then when I start to see an overall vibe and feel  forming I can pick from the best and make a compilation. I'll probably go back through the year and start revamping and polishing some of my improvisations as well.

Here's a little ditty for Week 34, Waiting.

Thanks for listening,

A Thing A Week - 2016 - Week 33 - Calming Water

Can you believe that there are only 19 weeks left in 2016!?

But for now summer is still in full swing. I got to spend some time outside this weekend. Nature always fuels my creative process. This week's thing, which happens to be an improvisation for solo piano, is also inspired by a painting by artist Alison Albrecht.

For Week 33, I present to you, Calming Water.

Until next week,

A Thing A Week - 2016 - Week 32 - Weather Patterns

Hey, so I just finished up another huge work! Remember Weather Patterns for Trumpet and Piano?

I finished the final draft of the sheet music which looks great. The studio recording is completed and sounds great. Hat's off to trumpeter Kate DeVoe Schumann for her stellar performance.

Time to share it with you all :)

So this piece is my Opus 14. I know Opus is technically in regard to the order in which things are published and not the order they are composed, and I published A Guitar Quartet of Sorts last week which is my Opus 15, but Weather Patterns was created in full and premiered prior to the completion of A Guitar Quartet of Sorts, so, I'm gonna do it this way. Here it is, my Opus 14, Weather Patterns.

Same as last week, lots of goodies at THIS LINK including a virtual copy of the score, digital downloads, and sheet music for sale!

Thanks for all your support. We'll see you next week :)

A Thing A Week - 2016 - Week 31 - A Guitar Quartet of Sorts

Hey Everybody!

I spent the week cleaning up the tracks for A Guitar Quartet of Sorts and doing a final master of the full set. Getting these ready for my grant proposal. I'm also planning to release these on Spotify and iTunes. So, here it is in all it's glory, my Opus 15, A Guitar Quartet of Sorts.

Also, I have lots of goodies at THIS LINK including a virtual copy of the score, digital downloads, sheet music for sale, and an archive of the videos.

Thanks for stopping by! See you next week,
