ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
My love for music started when I was very young. My family had a family orchestra which allowed us to share our talents with others. As I grew older I became involved with music in school, playing the trumpet and French horn. In high school I played in the school district’s concert orchestra where I learned to truly love beautiful music.

When I was twelve I was called to be the pianist at my church for our weekly meeting. The only problem was I hadn't ever taken piano lessons, and wasn’t very good. I would play with one finger as the men would sing. If I made a mistake I would turn red and vow to practice more the next week. After a few years of learning and sweating through hymns, I was called to play the organ for the congregation. That started the anxiety and embarrassment all over again. But I never quit.

When I married I bought a piano and played in the evenings after work. As a busy carpenter all my life, this was a relaxing time for me to unwind and play. I would play in the dark as my kids would go to sleep. Many years have gone by and with no more kids at home I still find myself turning off the lights and playing hymns to unwind.

As a carpenter I found that my hands would swell up after longs days at work making it difficult for my fingers to fit between the keys. I found that I could change keys and play mostly on the blacks- lots of sharps, but it works.

After years of playing, I love to sit down and improvise old tunes and create new sounds. Much of my music is written sitting at the piano with the music flowing from my heart to my fingers. I love music and I hope that you love mine.
