I was always musically talented. I taught myself guitar and piano when I was younger and wrote some songs. I would say I "dabbled" in music. It didn't mean as much to me as it should have and I got away from it. Recently, the coming of the digital age has excited me again. The tools and resources we have now are nothing short of amazing. In the Spring of 2020, I decided I wanted to get back to music and see what I could make of my talents. I already owned a copy of Notion software, so I began using that and really putting some work into it.
My favorite music is chord driven. I remember my first experiences writing music were as a very small child. My grandmother had an electric organ that had buttons that would play chords. I remember ignoring the keys and just making little songs with those buttons. It amazed me, even at the age of 3 or 4, how those chords made me feel, how a minor chord would make a different feeling in my chest than a major chord. To this day, I try to make my music give me those feelings. If I don't feel a welling up of some emotion, I am more likely to think it's not quality music.
For a long time, I have not been a fan of music that repeats. I like songs that kind of give you a ride. I used to love progressive rock. Listened to it until I got tired of it. When I discovered romantic classical, I fell in love with it. I started with impressionists like Debussy and Ravel. For a long time, I was a snob, thinking that was the only kind of music. Since I started composing, I've broadened my tastes substantially.
One last thing, I am open and friendly. I hope no one is ever afraid to approach me or ask questions. I'd love to just talk about music - or anything else - if you just want someone to chat with.
