Introduction

I found it!
Ok.. well, let me restate that.. After many years of searching, I was gracefully Given it.
I'm speaking of this Style, this compositional style... just a few years ago, the beginning of 2002 to be exact, I finally came across the piano style that fits me perfectly.
In a nutshell, it's improvisational. It's.. stream of consciousness mixed with impressionism. But most importantly, it's not mine to keep. God has graced me with this music, but only so that I can share it with others.
So please, listen, enjoy, try to understand what i'm trying to say with the music.. and please, pass on this gift to others.

I'm fascinated by your activity and hope you use your gift wisely. I'm presently practicing Flamenco music on a new Dobro. Previously I played some Bluegrass and melodic Banjo. Interesting enough when I got into Flamenco and Spanish type music I felt I had found my music. Bluegrass Banjo was a challenge but sometimes I didn't feel it was truly me. I thank God after every practice.

Best wishes.

Hi. Your music blog looks like a very good idea. Perhaps you could expand the concept in the future to play some audio posts of your piano music.

Thank you for asking, Deb! As a matter of fact, I just finished the cd itself today, and am working on editing the insert. I hope to have it ready any day now.

Thank you so much!

Hi Bill,

Not sure where best to contact you about your music. I'm a student/freelance journalist who is producing a free meditation CD to go with a free pilot magazine. I have sent you an email, but would love to use one of your tracks in the background to the CD. I'm happy not only to acknowledge you, but to offer links to your website/music on the CD and in the magazine.

The magazine is a spiritual magazine and the way your music is put together and inspired would make a great addition.

My email is julia27@me.com or I've sent you a friends req on facebook if you prefer to communicate from there.

Either way, what a wonderful gift and thank you for sharing it with us all.

Regards, Julia

Hi William,

My name is Aldo Fuertes. I’m from Peru (South America) and live in Lima (so, sorry by my bad English). I congratulate you on your talent. Your music are beautiful. I would like to use your music melody “Theme from Mozart's Sonata in C” as on hold music from our company (for an IVR). Can you give me permission for this? I sent you an email , but I don't know if he came, so I write here.
Thank you for all and again congratulations for your talent.

Aldo Fuertes.
