    Set the Night to Music

    I love to sing, and I write poetry and would so love to be able to put all that to music and get the chance to play and share my stories with people through music.  Maybe someday I'll meet up with someone that will colaberate with me.. :)

    Just Wish I Could Publish It...

    Discouraged By Theory Books

    In my younger days, I had to study music theory, and I found this very discouraging. Long lists of rules - too many to remember - followed by even longer lists of "permitted exceptions" to the rules. It became so daunting that I came to believe it was impossible. May be...
