|Piano - A few Songs from my Clavinova|
One of my lifetime goals has been to learn to play the piano. I took 6 years of Jazz piano lessons when I lived in San Francisco [1991 to 1998]. My piano teacher was my late friend, Jim Rousey. He was very patient with me. I faithfully went to my lessons on Friday evenings at 5:00 in spite of whatever pressures I was experiencing at my work. Sometimes I would have to return to work, but my lessons were important to me.
I have now learned to record my songs on my new iPhone and to transfer them to my website with some of the new web building tools that I have just purchased. I hope that you take a few minutes to enjoy some of my selections. It is my intention to learn how to make a DVD so that I can share some of these songs with my friends.
I am slowly building this collection of songs that I am playing on my Yamaha Clavinova, which I purchased when I arrived in San Francisco in 1991. My goal is to end up with my best ten songs so that I can share them with others.
I have accepted that I cannot do everything in life, but I enjoy trying to do many things. This project is based on my trying to reach my 'personal best'. My motto is as follows:
"It is a wise person who recognizes what he can and cannot do; and then, maximizes his contribution and achievement within the domain of the achievable...."
As I am able to improve each of these recordings, I will update this page. I invite you to stop back occasionally and watch my progress.
