I’ve been thinking of ways to keep myself motivated and sharing music with others while social distancing due to COVID-19. So, I’ve decided to work my way through the alphabet of composers, and record a piece each week for you! I’ll be spending about a week on each work, so it’ll be a pretty intense period of learning for me. And, I’m hoping to give you anywhere between 1-10 minutes of something intriguing.
You can find a new video and information about each piece posted every Monday on my Facebook page.
Links to the video on YouTube are posted here below.
I’m wishing everyone good health and spirit during this challenging time.
