This is the second in a series of blog posts about the stories that inspired the music in my April release Moods, Impressions & Souvenirs.

Thanksgiving Medley release TODAY!
I have a new single available on all platforms today! Here it is on YouTube: It was fun to arrange these two hymns – one traditional Dutch and one by English organist George Job Elvey (1816-1893) – for solo piano. I think they work SO well together and hope they will be a welcome companion […]

Happy Birthday, Mackenzie

This disrupts the normal course of development and causes the associated […]
