Corona Chronicles A-Z

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 YouTube and Facebook pages.

I’m wishing everyone good health and spirit during this challenging time.
