My Music Project

Hey everyone!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.

Here you’ll find a more detailed overview of my music project, and I’ll be updating it on a weekly basis to give you the latest news on my progress.

For more information, on the top right hand corner of this page, you’ll find the headings “Piano Nights”, “La Bella Vita” and “Classical.” If you click on them, it’ll link you to a page where I’ve listed the names of all of the pieces I’m working on for that particular YouTube channel (including those of planned playlists).

Now throughout August and September, I’ll be adding audio demos for these pieces so that you’ll have a better idea of what the finished product will sound like. You’ll get a heads-up for these on my weekly updates (Sundays).

The deadline I have set myself for this project is November 6th. I’ll be busy busy busy but I’ll find the time to update here at least once a week.

I’ll keep you posted!
