Dear Reader,

This week I posted 8 of my short, keyboard compositions,.
They are a sort of a cross between Bach and Tchaikovsky !
Look for lots of melody, atonal is out for me.

Please give these a thumbs up! Comments are welcome too!

This is one of hundreds of keyboard bagatelles that I’ve written. Most
are a minute or so long. My piano playing is average at best, so it’s
the composition that is important.

Modern classical music? Got to be atonal, strident, cold, and weird,
right? Don’t think so!!! I try to make these bagatelles melodic,
simple, beautiful, elegant, and fun!

Most have a 2 part structure with a major theme, then a minor middle
then a repeat of the original theme. Join the music revolution!

The Joni Mitchell Quote

April 6, 2019

Dear Reader,

This Joni Mitchell quote was sent to me by JHC. Mitchell is right and its worse than she thought because ‘they’ are only 3 CEOs, the Big 3 – google it for more.
That’s why the music revolution from Dallas against these 3, and for all the other musicians in the world.

Joni Mitchell:

“I heard someone from the music business saying they are no longer looking for talent, they want people with a certain look and a willingness to cooperate. I thought, that’s interesting, because I believe a total unwillingness to cooperate is what is necessary to be an artist – not for perverse reasons, but to protect your vision. The considerations of a corporation, especially now, have nothing to do with art or music. That’s why I spend my time now painting.”
