May 2011 Listening Diary!

Sunday, May 1: I started the month with some classic Joe Satriani while working out on the treadmill in the form of selections from his Flying In A Blue Dream and The Extremist

Midnight by Joe Satriani

Oops, lots of mistakes in this one (especially near the end), but less than in previous takes. I thought about doing another take, but I was worried my neighbors were already sick of hearing it...


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....
