Short Poems To Kill Time

Hi everyone. Here are some short poems to kill time that I came up with while taking a ferry ride. The creative juices started flowing after watching a Red Green episode where Harold and Red were singing a tune that made no sense whatsoever. It was great!

Anyways…

Being a song writing novice,
Can be rather overwhelming
When it comes to being stumped,
Just do it and quit whining….
**************
Red Green on guitar,
Harold on spoons,
Sing about life,
While sitting in the boons.
*********
So worried about not rhyming lyrics,
Just sit and sit while tossing proses,
Only to watch a Red Green show,
Prove it comes and goes in doses
***********
It don’t rhyme,
It don’t jive,
Makes me laugh,
And that’s no crime.

That’s all I have for now.

Proudly Sharing A Recent Review…

Proudly sharing a recent review from a wedding performance I was honored to participate in:

I really wanted a solo flutist for our ceremony and was very happy to find Marie with all her experience. We had multiple phone calls in the months before to finalize the music pieces- we wanted all classical. Marie arrived early, was dressed appropriately and played beautifully! She is a friendly professional musician and we are so appreciate her being part of our day.

Canon In D: Another Wedding Music Clip

Hi everyone. I thought it would be fun to share another music clip I just finished. This classical composition – titled ‘Canon In D’ is a very popular wedding choice, dating back to the 1800’s. Composer is Johann Pachelbel.

Here is only a small bit of this beautiful tune played on my silver flute:

Enjoy My New Brahms Audio Clip

Hi everyone. While I am still figuring out how all this digital technology works on a new computer….please enjoy this audio clip I just finished. Johannes Brahms is the composer. ‘Blessed Are They’ is the composition.

Brahms has always been one of my favorite classical composers. His music is soothing, intricate, and brings out the best in a flute. I only use my musical ability to bring life to his magic.

Hope you find it equally soothing and insightful…
