A Winter Walk

Alone with your thoughts on a winter day you feel the chill of the air but know that you can always return to the warmth of home.

Bella's Ballet Routine

Jan used to improvise music for ballet classes, and this was inspired by memories of all of the young dancers there.

Caterpillar Jig

Imagine how much fun a caterpillar would have dancing a jig with all of those legs! The tune takes lots of twists and turns with surprises galore.

Cowboy Song

Picture cowboys sitting around the fire at the end of the day feeling lazy and getting ready for a night sleeping under the stars.

Dreamy Dancing

This wistful expressive melody is smoothly carried through modulating chord patterns that somehow find their way back home.

Gentle Blue Skies

Let your heart gently soar into the clouds and beyond a perfect sky.

Jackson's Lullaby

This is a very personal piece for our beautiful grandson Jackson. The left hand provides a gentle rocking motion while the right hand sings a tender lullaby.

Looking for Magic

Augmented triads and whole tone scales weave a spell to open the door into the unknown.

Private Eye

This offers an exploration of dramatic rests and fermatas. The game is afoot!

Sassy Fun

Time for a some bluesy jazz- let ‘er rip!

Sauntering Along

In the tradition of ragtime, the left hand alternates a bass line with chords on the off-beats while the left hand plays a syncopated melody.

Smashing Things

An introduction to tone clusters and effective use of arm weight. The notes are much easier to understand when you see them on the keyboard.

Spanish Waltz

After two opening flourishes, this waltz was inspired by spanish-flavored harmonies.

Strange Encounters

This piece is like a soundtrack to a movie about aliens and mysterious creatures. It uses the tension of tritones to create an interesting soundscape.

The Journey

What travels do you imagine when playing this piece and where would you go? Anything is possible.
