I had the fun and wacky experience of having a camera over my fingers at the piano during a recent concert at the Aladdin Theatre in Portland. Check it out...
Are you wondering... why the camera? Well, this song was part of a unique concert / presentation called "Music and the Aging Brain," with neuroscientist Dr. Larry Sherman. He requested a piece that demonstrated the fine motor skills of playing an instrument. So I dusted off this little tune, "Gardens in the rain," by Debussy. It's fun, a little flashy, and appropriate subject matter for a pianist born and raised in the Pacific Northwest.
If you watch till the end, you'll see they bring me beer. Ah, Portland. You're a fun place to be.
I am always so thankful to have all of you - a tribe of people that are connected to this journey of making music. I hope that the things I create, including wacky videos like the one above, add enjoyment, creativity, and beauty to your life and our world.
love, peace and music,
