So instead of entertaining guests as we sail along the Rhine and Moselle, I am here. Expect the sort of music you would have heard had you been on board: standards - American and jazz, show tunes, a few popular classics and singer-songwriters especially Elton John and Billy Joel. I might even play one or two of mine if the mood is right.
I have a soundcloud account with some of my own songs and a youtube channel for occasional virtual band videos. Apart from music, I write a daily blog and have done so since January 2018. Since March 2020, I record a weekly audio version so if you fancy reading or hearing more about my ordinary life, the links are around somewhere!
I gave up lessons after Grade 2 because I hated my teacher and wanted to learn the trombone instead.
A guest last season found out about this and told me I was the greatest Grade 2 piano player in the world.
I must put that on a T-shirt one day....
P.S. This is true - see below
Playing the Wombles theme tune at a concert hall to accompany a recorder big band and completely getting it wrong, stopping, standing up and apologising before starting again...
