as Performing Musician
Performing is the first way that I learned to share music with others. Music is a language that everyone seems to understand and relate to, no matter what their background is. It is the “universal language,” yet each performer expresses it differently. When I perform, I study the piece or song to be able to do justice to its composer(s) and original hearing or recording, but I also study it to connect with the piece because that is the only way to perform it from the heart. I also then embellish on or add my own ideas to the parts of the song that I particularly like or think would better convey the meaning of the piece to my audience, according to rules of each piece’s genre.
Currently, I play and sing with a small Blues/Jazz band, am involved with music at my church, and am usually available for any gig that would need me as a pianist and/or vocalist, when given at least 48 hours notice.
