Three Sides of A Musical Coin
In this highly accessible solo piano program, I creatively blend three musical traditions—classical, jazz, and pop—into one. Combining my own compositions and well-known works by composers like J.S. Bach, John Coltrane, and John Lennon with stories about the music that elucidate the creative process, the program is entertaining and educational.
