Back in 1977, I began learning piano with some simple instruction from my sister. Most of my brothers and sisters took formal music lessons, but I did not. Intrigued by the emotional styles of Elton John, Billy Joel and Scott Joplin, I began my journey of pursuing my musical talents.
I learned everything I could by sheet music and learned the rest by ear.
Meanwhile, I continued the search to develop my own style. I started to experiment with different chords and hand runs. Life evoked heartfelt emotions which were put to music and my first song was written. I called it A Walk In The Garden, because I was reminded of such a place. My next piece was written a year later, after my first true heartbreak. A lot of deep emotions were brought forth in this piece. From happy to morose, I immersed myself into the writing process.
Over the years I've written various pieces at different emotional stages in my life. Each one of these pieces represents a moment in time; times I've tried to capture like pictures in my life.
I hope that you enjoy these pieces as much as I enjoy playing them.
