Welcome To My Website

WHAT THIS SITE CONTAINS

 

This site features a collection of my compositions, cover songs, my autobiography and business material, including my portfolio and two podcast links.  This updated site will not feature a full educational component.  In regard to music theory, I have included a short section on basic theory as well as an overview of music history on the foundations of Western Musical culture.

 

This website is a work in progress.  Please be patient as I finish each of these pages.

*Note: To view the documents, you will need to have Adobe Reader (any version will suffice).  To hear the audio (compositions), I have used .mp3 file format (audio format used by both Windows and Macintosh).

 

INTRODUCTION TO THIS SITE: WHAT IS MUSIC?

 

Because of the many differences in each country's culture, the definition of music will vary.  In general terms, music is an art form whose medium is sound and silence.

 

The subject of music is vast, from musical instruments and music history to composition and music technology.  To study every aspect of music is very difficult.  Someone who studies music, a musicologist, will focus on one area of music for research and study.  For example, ethnomusicology (the study of music of other cultures), theory or history.  Other full time musicians will perform (such as band work, solo or in an orchestra) or compose to make his or her own living.

 

MY PURPOSE AND VISION FOR THIS SITE

 

My purpose and vision for this site is threefold:

1.  To market my own musical skills and abilities and share them with others

2.  To enhance and inspire people from around the world to create their own musical journey       using my own skills and abilities

3.  To provide a basic, free musical education
