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!
