Hello All,

Here is a performance of one of my piano compositions Spirit of the Tumbleweed. I used iGrand from my iPad to create this audio from my keyboard and camera connection kit. Hope you guys enjoy and any feedback is appreciated. This song will be on my upcoming album, (a different version with wind and tumbleweed sound effects etc)... When I wrote this song I imagined a piano in an old tavern out west playing by itself. The song is uplifting yet a little creepy at the same time, at least that's how I feel. Anyways, not the best recording but it beats any computer generated file!

How long have you been playing music and composing?

Stale fleas,

Playing music for a while. I grew up in band in high school. Played clarinet and known how to read sheet music most of my life. Been composing for about 3 years. Mostly self taught. Did have some help from Robert King on truepianotranscriptions.com he was my transcriptionist but then he was pretty busy with things in his life and didn't have much time to transcribe anymore. So I took things in my own hands and been transcribing my own music even though there are some errors at least I am writing my music down. :-) thanks.

May I suggest soundcloud.com. I don't know of they'll accept m4a files, but if they do that would allow us to stream your music rather than download then listen.
