    Wow, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything here. Thanks to all the people coming to the site from all over the globe! Here’s a link to something new I’m starting.

    I’m hoping to share the wisdom that I have been given in my years as a piano student and teacher.  I hope people will find it interesting and informative.

    Tucson Folk Festival Recap

    May 12, 2013 // Comments Off on Tucson Folk Festival Recap

    embedded by Embedded Video

    My assessment of the Folk Festival performance:

    1.  I survived. After not performing for a year.
    2. The dry heat made my throat and mouth cotton mouthed, my guitar was going flat by the minute and I discovered I could not see the tuning light on it in the daylight or the shade.
    3. The guitar to me was very hard to hear. I could hear nothing from the monitors. This was the most disconcerting thing. So I over-played – forced my playing.

    I could say a lot more, but some things went very well and without much practice, and with no prior playing experience the ensembles went off very well. Live and learn and do better next time! Thanks so much to Michael Santander and Rose Todaro for risking their lives with me and adding so much to this effort!

    Ode to a Nightingale, John Keats

    July 18, 2010 // Comments Off on Ode to a Nightingale, John Keats

    First draft of John Keats’ famous poem “Ode to a Nightingale”.  Just me with my guitar…. oops,  says file is too big! The song turned out to be right at 10 minutes long.  O.k. I’ll see what else I can do.

    So here’s a preview of the first two verses:

    Ode to a Nightingalepreview2

    Here’s the first two lines again but different:

    FirstlinereviseOdeNight

    I’ve been playing with violin, viola, cello and flute which all sound good, but I keep coming back to the bare bones creation. What can I say!

    Thank you,  John for this beautiful poem. I hope you like what I’m doing with it.

    Nearly Ready….or do I speak too soon!

    July 7, 2010 // Comments Off on Nearly Ready….or do I speak too soon!

    Ode to a Nightingale is finally pulling together.  I’m getting very close to beginning the recording process.  My first reaction to putting this great work to music was a bit overwhelming. But patient, inching progress has led to something I think will be very nice and fitting of the great sentiments.

    My favorite part: “Was it a vision or a waking dream? Fled is that music-do I wake or sleep?”  (The very last lines)

    Of course I love the whole poem. I hope you will like what I’m doing with it.

    “Waiting” by John Burroughs

    August 23, 2009 // Comments Off on “Waiting” by John Burroughs

    John Burroughs

    John Burroughs

    I’m still working on the final version of John Burroughs poem “Waiting.” So far there is guitar and three voices  a la Crosby, Stills and Nash or so I’ve been told! Yet I thought that was a great compliment!

    This poem interested me in that I feel Burroughs has connected with an eternal truth which is in essence:  what is mine shall come to me.  In it he seems to say accept who you are and from that acceptance your life will unfold as it should and all that is required will come in it’s perfect time.  He points toward the natural synchronicity of nature and life and the co-ordination of the inner and outer expressions of life.

    Burroughs was a nature enthusiast and writer along the lines of Thoreau, Emerson and Whitman.

    In the words of his biographer Edward Renehan, Burroughs’s special identity was less that of a scientific naturalist than that of  “a literary naturalist with a duty to record his own unique perceptions of the natural world.” (from Wikipedia)

    It is a great honor and joy to conect with these great writers through music. I hope I serve the ideas they brought to light in a way that enhances and enlivens the written words.

    Here’s the poem.  Waiting by John Burroughs

    John Burroughs Association

    Songs of mine that are related to these ideas:  From the Morning Sun CD: Morning Sun,  Love’s Song from the Forest, Love Only Comes. From the SINGular mOMent CD:  Butterfly

    The lulu edition of MOrning Sun has an axtra bonus track:  “Rumors from an Aeolian Harp” by Henry David Thoreau. Check it out!
