I am so happy to let you know that I have an appointment this week with a studio about getting my music on a CD. We heard that there is funding available to help me get my music recorded in our town. So I am very happy that it is about to happen. We are meeting with the owner of the studio to find out the details. I have asked my sister Leah, to play her viola for a couple of my songs, so she is getting her part ready. It is so fun that I can now share music with her. She is a great musician and has played viola for most of her life. She plays in an orchestra and a band, so she is very good. But to have her create music with me is something we haven’t done before. She is always encouraging of my music so this will be fun for us.
My uncle is getting married in December and he and Kristin asked if they could use my music for their ceremony. Leah will be playing for that too. What is fun for me is that now I don’t just have to listen to others play their music, but the songs that are in my heart can be played by others and I can enjoy them too. I can’t play my songs because my hands won’t work that way, but others can perform the music I have composed. It brings me great joy.
