A private piano teacher in New York for 35 years. I have been recording instrumentally and full band, the music of Journey and Solo Steve Perry. Virtual Journey Band is a international collaborative recording band. I work with musicians from around the world.
The feeling of working hard to prepare a piece of music and then recording it in my studio is so rewarding ...gives me inner peace and strength...always remember, “You have to make your own happiness”
To just continue what I’ve been doing for many years...just keep striving to become a better musician.
1st song I ever heard from the band Kansas while flipping around the radio dial...hearing that violin in a progressive Rock band knocked my head off my shoulders..
Kerry Livgren of Kansas was my biggest influence. The Masters of music like Chopin Bach, Mozart, Scriabin ,the list is many because I’ve studied all their music throughout the years.
It’s just in me...my father was a musician.
Just hope you enjoy it .
Now a days it’s in front of my students..just in command.
The new artists have too many tricks available to them.
Great so far..
I feel every musician needs to have insecurities in order to keep moving forward...sometimes the little guy on our shoulders taps us on the head and says ....hey you lack this and you need to better yourself on that..that can be frustrating because there are times when these forces are pronounced and can play games with your head..
