I started my journey in the arts and entertainment industry as a musician studying piano as a boy in kindergarten and taking it all the way into college. The arts and entertainment world was always a source of blessing to me in all its forms that I was fortunate to work in almost every professional aspect of the arts for over thirty years from piano accompanist, music director, private music teacher, composer as well as director choreographer, producer and singer/actor/dancer on Broadway for 10 years. When I was a producing or teaching music, I was always in search of music to fit the right show for the right moment or help develop particular skills for a music class. As a creator, I was always in search of music that would enhance my creative project to tell the story of my creative vision. Then one day a light bulb in my mind flashed on when a friend asked me for advice on the type of music she should find to fit her creative project. I said, "You know what would be great for this? You need to find some music that is poignant, something that moves you emotionally; it's sad but in a way that honors the memories of the past." Then I started to plunk out this chord progression. "Something like this," I said. She then had an 'aha' moment. But I also had an 'aha' moment. The muse of inspiration blew my mind up - figuratively speaking. So, instead of looking everywhere for music, I asked myself why don't I just create the music myself for other creators, other teachers and directors. So, I founded Visionary Quest Records in 2017 creating and producing my own instrumental music spanning a wide variety of genres from modern classical, new age, hip-hop, country, rock, as well as EDM. But nothing could have prepared me for what was to come .
A few months ago, I received a call from my parents. My Mother had some sad news to give me. Dad was very ill. My whole life flashed before me. My parents were always 200% supportive of all my artistic endeavors. None of my success would have been possible but for my Dad and Mom. My memories of my Dad and my Mom flooded my mind like a deluge. When I heard the news about how gravely ill he was I thought to myself that so often we give thanks, honor, or show our love when it is too late. Who wants to be that person? I was finally in the unique position to show my gratitude and love to my parents in the most special way that I could - through music from my heart and soul. I got the courage to look deeply within and then I began to write what was to become the pieces or movements to Tears from My Eyes, which I dedicated to my Dad and Mom.
You will now be able to do just the same for your loved ones with this new music. Your intermediate level to advanced students and even professional musicians should find this to be a welcomed piece to learn and master. It looks deceptively simple but the learning and challenge comes from two smaller sub-ensembles playing together in their own collective units legato con moto while playing together as a whole music ensemble Everyone will enjoy and bathe in the beautiful harmonies that will resonate when the entire music ensemble begins to listen to each while playing together as a group. Your musicians will hone their skills in playing together with just the right balance that this song requires. Your musicians will also hone their skills for subdividing and maintaining an inner beat that is in sync with your conducting because there is no percussion and the notes are freely flowing on and off the down beat yet not sounding heavily syncopated when performed. When will you know when you have achieved the right balance and flow of the music? You will know when, because you will hear it and feel it when it comes into place. But I can help you with all of this with what I have to offer you today. I share with you now Tears from my Eyes: Reflection and Contemplation (for Flute Choir).
