I posted earlier about my goal to record an EP this year and make it available on Bandcamp, etc.: that is now a goal for 2019.

I worked on it…I really did. And I learned a few things:

  1. Playing ‘live’ on a Steinway grand at the cancer center and playing in my studio on a digital keyboard (albeit a good one) are two really different experiences. It’s almost as though I lose the meaning of the music when I’m recording.
  2. I’m not a sound engineer, but I know I’m not quite satisfied with the final sound quality I’m getting so far. I want to take some time to try a few different approaches.
  3. I want a more solid theme for the EP/album – not a ‘variety pack’.
  4. I’m letting perfection get in the way of good. I record countless takes and am not fully satisfied with any of them. I have to accept that my technique is only so good, that it’s okay for my recordings to reflect me, where I am, how I play.

Thank you for listening this year – I can’t begin to tell you how much that encourages me!  And grace and peace to you in 2019!


p.s.  I’m always open to your thoughts about how I could make this site better for you – don’t hesitate to let me know.

Your opinion, please…

As I mentioned earlier this year, I have a goal to record an EP of some of my music and make it available from sites like Bandcamp, iTunes, etc..  I’m thinking of trying to include 5 or so pieces and I’d love to know if you have any favorites you’d like me to include.

All 39 pieces I’ve posted so far are available on the Just Listen page. I’d love it if you’d take a look and listen and comment below to tell me which are your favorites.

Thanks to all who hang out here!

Two announcements…

First announcement – day change

I have been posting here on dwpianomusic.com pretty regularly on Sundays and Wednesdays lately.  Now that I am posting on becomingflame.com on MWF, I will switch the schedule here to Sundays and Thursdays. (We’ll see how that goes and adjust as needed.)

Second announcement – Just Listen page reflects plans for my first album

If you ever want to hear 42 minutes of quiet piano music, maybe the Just Listen page is the place for you. It now has a play list reflecting the songs I’m thinking about including on an album I’m planning to record. I’d love to know your feedback about any aspect – selection, order, piano sound, tempos…whatever.

Grace and peace to  you…and thank you for hanging out here.
