After yesterday’s songwriting experience I’ve been feeling a little discouraged. A little unsure about this dream I have. Am I asking too much of myself? Is this Grammy dream of mine totally delusional? To be honest, I am not used to difficulty when I do something, I usually really good a picking things up real […]Read more "Ultralight Beam"
My first foray into songwriting was the most uncomfortable thing I have ever experienced. I can usually shrug off pretty much anything. Don’t like my blog, okay. Don’t like my clothes, no problem. Don’t like my string quartet, no big deal, thanks for taking the time to listen to it. But for some reason “here […]Read more "River"

Perhaps it was my mood, or maybe I’m improving. Who knows, but I now feel like I am headed somewhere, on […]Read more "Cello Concerto in E minor Op. 85"
