Sinfonia Shaping Up Nice! Or, Explorations of Hexachords

I am just so stoked about how my new orchestral Sinfonia is shaping up! I got a lot of fascinating work done on it today… Long story short… I developed an intro theme and then broke that apart to find it was built upon 6 distinct notes (not counting a …

You’ve Written a Piece–What Now?

This is a great resource I stumbled upon for composers looking to get some musicians playing their music! …Ask performers within your network if they might be interested in playing at the concert you’re setting up… For clarity, and because it is good practice, you should draw up a written agreement… Your …

“Weeping Willow” Practice Session

My good friend, Adrienne Andisheh, and I got together yesterday to start practicing the two violin parts for our recording session of “Weeping Willow” on Dec 18! This video was only the second time we ran it together; we still have some spots to iron out, but I was super impressed by how quickly it’s coming together, and HOW FUN it is to play!!!

The recording should be available on Dec 20; you can hear the duet in perfection with our pianist then!! 😀

New Violin Duet in the Works

Or, if I do add a piano part, I want to have it wait a while to come in… Can’t wait to see where this goes and how it unfolds! 😁

The Music Nerds! – A New Video Series

Kudos to GoStrings.com!

I just wanted to send a quick shout out to GoStrings.com – I was thinking of them as it came time to reorder new strings for Flora… I love their Build Your Own Custom [Violin, Viola, Cello] Set option!! It’s so unique, and so smart!  I’ve used this option for both Flora …

New Ear Candy – Some Jazz & Some Queen…

I came across some recordings from the final concert I did with TMC’s String Orchestra – a concert where I was ballsy enough to do a sort of “pops” concert and feature some really hip and fun music. ^_^ I made a fun video of one of my two favorites from …
