Quick Music Update

There's a saying in the music business:

"Practice for two hours each day, everyone knows you're not good, and you know you are not good. Practice for four hours each day, everyone thinks you're good, but you know that you are still not good. But practice for eight hours each day, then everyone knows you're good, and you know you are good."

Well, for brevity's sake, I haven't been able to practice much these past six weeks or so as I have been learning new job skills at a new job in a whole new occupation for myself. Hey, I love and have a passion for my music, but someone has to pay for piano upkeep and shelter. My old profession of civil engineering design work for over 28 years went the way of the horse-and-buggy (but without anything else to replace it) after the 2008 "residential and commercial real estate" crash, and it was time to find another line of work.

However, for these past two weeks I have finally been able to sneak in more piano practice time each day and sharpen my "chops." As I greatly appreciate your patience, I am working on new music to record and post coming next month in June 2011, including one of my own new piano compositions. So, I invite you to please check back soon and often. Thank you so much for your interest.

Cheers, John
