Day At The Beach by Joe Satriani

Back to my guitar roots with this bright finger-tapping chordal piece from Joe Satriani's Flying In A Blue Dream album:


 

Pomp & Circumstance (Duet for Two Peters)

Another piece from Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course Level 2, "Pomp and Circumstance" by Sir Edward Elgar:


 

April 2011 Listening Diary!

Friday, April 1: I began the month with some classic John Williams at the gym on the treadmill. And it doesn't get any more "classic" than Raiders of the Lost Ark. I listened to the final third of the score from "The Airplane Fight" up to the rousing finale.

When Johnny Comes Marching Home

I had no idea this piece would be so much fun when I first saw it in my piano book! Now, I'm absolutely in love with it and can't stop playing it!


 

The Hokey-Pokey!

Today I did the Hokey-Pokey! Sheet music is included below if you want to follow along or try it yourself - it's a very fun piece! I had loads of fun learning it on the piano; I just hope I didn't annoy my neighbors too much^^



Practicing Elmer Bernstein's Great Escape March

The Elmer Bernstein Collection (piano book) just arrived and the first piece I'm attempting is his famous and fabulous "The Great Escape March." I still have a long way to go, but practicing it is a lot of fun:


 

Some Music from Bear McCreary's Battlestar Galactica Scores....

Just me and my two other musical selves playing around with some sample pages from the soon-to-be-released Battlestar Galactica Piano Book. I don't think I'll ever get tired of making videos like this....



 

Harold Faltermeyer's Axel F Theme from Beverly Hills Cop

I originally hoped to record the whole piece, but unfortunately my keyboard skills weren't up to the task. Instead I just recorded the main melody. And this video marks the first appearance of my new digital drum machine. I'm still not sure if it was a waste of money or not, but it sure is fun to hit:


 

Henry Mancini's Pink Panther Theme!

Here's my take on Henry Mancini's classic Pink Panther theme. This was definitely the most fun I've ever had playing music and making videos. Special thanks to Sydney Street's Mark Wash for lending me his bongos^^
