The Unfinished Story

Meet Christina. She has been working on The Unfinished Story, an original composition by Ip Chui Han Amy (click HERE to purchase sheet music) piece for several weeks in preparation for a public performance next Wednesday evening. Like many young artists, she is an extreme perfectionist and struggles with performance anxiety. To help her mentally prepare, I suggested we record the piece yesterday. I think she played it magnificently, and with her permission I am sharing the video with you. Your comments are welcome!

My First Music Video

I decided that the first piano solo I would add to my repertoire this year would be Castle Hunting by David Nevue. Castle Hunting has long been a favorite of mine; I will never forget the night David played it at a concert in the area and dedicated his performance to me. I almost cried. You can read about my association with David Nevue by clicking HERE; you can learn more about David and his work by clicking HERE.

Since I have played the piece so much, I hoped that it would be relatively easy for me to memorize, and that did turn out to be the case. Here are the results of my efforts. Enjoy!
