“Dancing Keys”, my first CD of original piano music tailored to the dance class, was a compilation of pieces I had created over the previous 25 years while working as an accompanist. Following its release I moved to the country – B.C.’s Sunshine Coast – and experienced a creative catharsis that produced more than 50 new compositions over the next 3 years. Consequently, I’ve decided to expand “Dancing Keys” into a series of CD recordings and issue this latest music across two separate discs known simply as volume 2 & 3 of the line.
“Dancing Keys 2”, the first release, consists of 24 original solo piano works, plus 13 bonus tracks where some of the pieces are re-worked to fit situations requiring different tempi and durations. The music has been designed for open classes and there is something for all ages and levels. This collection contains a wide range of musical influences. There are shades of Bach in my “Baroque Style” piece, hints of a “Twilight” movie soundtrack in “Vampires in the Woods” while “Mouse’s March” conjures up images of a Theme Park parade!
I hope it inspires you, both in the dance class and beyond!
