“This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.” -Leonard Bernstein
At Atlantic Music Festival this summer, that quote was our motto, though none of us knew how appropriate it would become to current events. And while I was going to post about the amazing summer I had at Atlantic, I felt that as someone who grew up in Charlottesville, I needed first to express my solidarity with the persecuted and the families of those who lost their lives to violent monsters who invaded my beloved, diverse hometown last weekend.
My new solo piano single “Lirio” has just been featured on The Piano Cloud’s final Editor’s Choice of 2014! I have been part of this online community for almost two years and am so grateful for all the support I’ve received… 2014 was quite a crazy year, but I’m glad to be finishing it off with a bang.
This blog is mostly going to be about my life as a producer and composer. Specifically, as a teenage producer and composer. Sometimes, though, I’m sure I’m going to write about other things.
Writing a blog is going to be something new and different for me. I’m not really the kind of person who’s always on Twitter or Facebook because, honestly, I don’t have time for it–I’m too busy working in the studio or doing homework. Even when I do have time for it, I don’t know what to write. Does anyone really care about everything that happened today? I don’t know, so I don’t bother to post about it to the world. Nevertheless, I’m sure I’ll find some interesting things to write about here.
