Video Lesson Openings!

Video LessonsI highly endorse local teachers. Having someone in-studio with you, teaching you, and helping you learn your instrument is the best option. But sometimes, that best option just isn’t there, and you can’t find a local teacher. In that case, the age of internet is a huge blessing! Now, all you need is a good internet connection, and you can connect with a teacher miles away (in completely different time zones altogether!). For several years now, I have offered video lessons on request. This year, however, I am opening up new lesson slots on Thursdays (CST) for live piano and violin video lessons. If you’ve not been able to find a local teacher, I would love to assist you in learning your instrument! Video lessons are not for everyone, though, so I will offer a free first lesson/consultation.

O Holy Night | Violin and Piano Duet

If there was to be one song that is considered THE Christmas classic, “O Holy Night” fits the bill perfectly. One of my students requested this for recital this year, and I was happy to oblige her.
What is one of the standard “Christmas classics” to you?

O Come, All Ye Faithful (from The Solid Rock album)

Several years ago, I recorded my first piano album, “The Solid Rock.” At the time, I thought it very well might be the only piano album I would be able to record (God’s plans surely aren’t ours, and I’m happy about that!). Because this was a once-in-a-lifetime event (or so I thought), it was a combination of all of my arrangements at the time: year 2012. That being said, one of the arrangements featured on this CD is none other than “O Come, All Ye Faithful.” Since it is nearing Christmastime, it needs a little revisit from me, as well as a delightful little sharing with you all via YouTube.
For the first time since 2012, the sheet music is now available for purchase! I am planning on working toward publishing the entire collection in sheet music form, but for now, you’ll have to be satisfied with just this one.
If you’d like to add it to your music library, MP3 singles are for sale here (or look them up on your favorite digital music server like Apple Music, iTunes, or Amazon).

 

Oh, How I Love Jesus | Violin, Piano Duet

I have enjoyed teaching violin the last couple of years. Before we moved, I had about four violin students. But at the time being, I have thirteen violin students (one video student in Nigeria!). One of my favorite things to do is to arrange hymns for them to play in church. I love that most of my students strongly desire to share their music for God’s glory.
Here is one that I recently arranged for a student to play (recorded by myself).
