Nothing but Treble...

The most recent project that I've been working on (as if there aren't enough) is the music podcast that I launched back in August. So far I've had a fair amount of success with it, and my colleague that has joined me in this daring venture (Melissa...

Since I was able to put on several virtual concerts over the course of the spring and summer months (mostly during the initial COVID-19 lockdown in California) I've had the opportunity to make arrangements for the next show, which I originally planned for early August...

A great big Thank You! to all those who watched the virtual piano concert last night -- and the two that I put on last month. These have been a great success, and in the midst of our social distancing it's been a great way to reach people. I constantly get notification...

Those are the words that came to mind after I watched Justin McKay's students perform at the Composition Recital on May 10th. The exciting part is that Composition Recitals are a regular event and not just a one-time thing. I was able to share one of my own composition...

Pianist and teacher Justin McKay is putting on a Composition Recital on May 10th, at the Episcopal Church in Chico (2341 Floral Ave). I'll be playing one of my originals (or maybe two), and Justin himself will be performing his own work as well. All of his students wil...
