These last 6 months have been a whirlwind of crazy good things!

My music was put on the back burner until recently as my son Won and qualified for the biggest Amateur Motocross Race in the World, Loretta Lynns! He placed 3rd overall!!!  This took our family on an amazing  road trip over 3000 km from Calgary, Alberta, Canada all the way to Tennessee! What a beautiful state…I think everyone has to make a trip to Tennessee!

I’ve been very inspired since I got home and have been writing lots and working on expanding my teaching business as well as my website and performing.  Check out my new website and grab a free download of one my songs!

This is something I have never shared on this blog…not sure why cause it’s one of my favorite songs!

I turned on my keyboard found this beautiful, echoey sound and wrote this in about 2 hours! Hope you all love it as much as I do…

Just got back from California, oh what a little sunshine can do!!

It’s 3 different ideas that will hopefully become a song.


A Song Writing experiment with Andy Othling

Snapshot 1 of piano videoAndy Othling is an amazing artist who started following my music and I in turn started following him! Last week he decided to loop a few guitar chords and posted it on his blog for anyone else to try and layer their ideas over-top of his. He’s going to pick a few of his favourite entries and feature them on his blog.

I knew at once I was going to try and do this as I’ve always imagined some of his sounds with my piano…  But this certainly challenged me as I’ve never recorded with my mics before nor have I tried to use a software program to layer my part over another.  This took me a week and a half but I did it! So proud of myself, it’s not perfect by any means but maybe this is the push I needed to experiment with some recording tools…

Check out Andy’s music and blog!

A little Piano Improv…

Posted: May 19, 2015 in Uncategorized

A long time since I’ve posted again…exciting things are happening for my music!

Of course once again I’ve had to delay them just a little as is the life of being a motocross mom and an artist…                          I’ve been working on some big projects musically and I am hoping to announce the release date by mid-summer.  I have a few new songs that I would love to share but I am keeping them secret…for now here’s a video of me improvising on the piano.  These last couple of weeks have been really hard as a parent as my heart is breaking for my son who is going through some hard times with his motocross.  I truly believe everything happens for a reason and I told him this is just one little bump in the road and will make him stronger because of it!

So this piano improv. is what I do when I need to just let go and be sad or whatever needs to come out..
