A musical interlude

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

I had piano lessons at around age 5, and again around age 10. I never practised enough or liked my teacher much. As a teenager at university, I went back to the piano to play tunes that I wanted to, and taught myself enough to get by on those. After university, nothing for a long time. But I wanted for a while to go back to piano, and so I’ve been studying since summer at the Redondo/Hermosa/Manhattan School of Dance and Music. I still don’t get enough time to practise, but I am learning a lot more music theory and really enjoying composing.

So here is the latest piece I composed: a minuet for violin and cello.
