Broadjam Member Reviews

Nothing like deep dark piano to stimulate the creative nodes in our magnificent brains. I love music that makes you "feel", especially in this numb world we live in now in 2016 and beyond. Love the work.

Duquesne University Visit - October 11, 2018

Hello dear music friends!

I just came back from a lovely trip to Pittsburgh, PA where I stopped in at Duquesne University and presented a few of my latest organ compositions to be shared with the students there. 

The Organ compositions are now available on line as digital downloads at sheetmusicplus,

one of the leading companies offering sheet music downloads.  

They also carry music from many of the publishing houses and composers.

Tribute to David Craighead - October 8, 2018

Hello dear music friends!

I hope and pray all is well with you today!  

Today's story is about one of America's great Organists, David Craighead,

who was Professor of Organ at Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. 

His illustrious career included concerts around the world.

He was bestowed an honorary Doctorate for his lifetime achievements as well as Fellow of the Royal College of Organists. 

David was also awarded Organist of the year by the American Guild of Organists in 1983.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Craighead 

I had the honor of performing for him in a tribute concert in 2005 in Pittsburgh, PA and had composed an organ piece for the occasion. 

I had misplaced the one and only score I had at the time and just recently discovered it.

I decided to add a 'Vivace' ending to the piece before publishing it for the public which has Professor Craighead's  name hidden in the pedal melody line. 

The alphabetic style of writing music was used sparingly by J S Bach but was fully expanded to its potential by the French composer Jean Langlais.  

Here is the link to my latest published work

"A' la Vie" for Organ

Tribute to Dr Ann Labounsky - October 4, 2018

Hello dear music friends!

I have another gem for you to review:

The "St Ann Suite for Organ" is a piece that I composed originally in 2012 for the national conference on the

"Music of Charles Tournemire" in Pittsburgh, PA and dedicated to

Dr. Ann Labounsky, Professor of Organ at Duquesne University, who was my Organ Professor at Duquesne 

and has been a lifelong friend and mentor

  1.  

     

Ann Labounsky is widely known, both in the United States and in Europe, as a virtuoso performer and improviser on the Organ 

and particularly as a leading American disciple of French composer Jean Langlais. 

She is the author of a biography of Langlais, Jean Langlais: The Man and His Music, (Amadeus Press, 2000)

Spotify fans - October 1, 2018

Hello dear music friends!

As you probably already know, in the past few years music streaming has definitely become the front runner for listening to music.  If you have a phone, more than likely you listen to music on it. 

YouTube, Itunes, Spotify, Google music and Pandora are just a few of the popular music sites out there today

Spotify is also one of my favorites

Going in a new direction - October 1, 2018

Good morning dear music friends!

Over the years I have had many inquiries for sheet music for my published piano and organ works and I am very happy to announce that my music will now be now available as digital downloads on https://www.sheetmusicplus.com 

Each composition title will become available one by one as I am able to make each work

"publisher ready"

Please have patience as the process will take a lengthy time to accomplish 

Here is a link for an Organ composition that I just finished called "Suite in A minor for organ"

 in memory of Dr. Joseph Willcox Jenkins, Professor Emeritus of Composition at Duquesne University

and a nationally known composer who was my theory and composition Professor

many years ago
