Christmas Carol Sing Video

Merry Christmas! It’s the season to focus on the birth of Christ and celebrate God’s deep love for us with family and friends. One meaningful way to relive the coming of Jesus is through Christmas carols. “This, this is Christ the King…” Join me Sunday, December 12, at 5:00pm for a half hour of singing Christmas carols and meaningful songs. It’s a prerecorded video on my YouTube channel. I’ll be there to chat with you if you’d like to make a comment. Even if you can’t make it when it open’s at 5:00pm, you can watch it later and even use it to sing these carols when you gather with family and friends. Take a break from the hectic thrust of December and worship the Lord. We hope you are encouraged and drawn closer to Jesus!

Christmas Carol Sing Online

I hope you can be a part of this premiere presentation where you can sing Christmas Carols with me. I recorded a live Christmas concert last year to introduce a number of songs on my just recorded Christmas album I Wish You a Mary Christmas. This year, I took 10 of those songs and included them on this Christmas Carol Sing. I’ll be in the chat room to dialogue during the video.

June Happenings and Update

Ramping Up

Summer is usually a time of “winding down,” but for me it’s more like “winding up.” After teaching for many years, some may think it’s time for things to be “wrapping up,” yet this Spring and Summer has been and will be more of a “ramping up” for me. I’m so thankful for the real-world education that Full Sail University gave me through the Master of Science degree program. The business plan for Heartfelt Music, developed over the last year, has equipped me to lead, manage, create, support, and motivate through Heartfelt Music like never before. In June, I’ll be trained to be an Avid Certified Instructor in Pro Tools (the leading recording software) and in July, I’ll finish training to be an Avid Certified Instructor in Sibelius (the leading music writing software). This will help Heartfelt Music expand its offerings in recording and writing out music. This will also help Valley Christian High School with their Music Technology class and a developing program to equip young performing artists. Thank you for your prayers! Your enthusiastic encouragement means so much to me.

Enjoy a Few Summer Guitar Lessons

I’ll be teaching guitar lessons throughout the summer in three locations, so you can catch a few if you’d like. In Los Altos, they are on Mondays: June 20 & 27, July 11 & 18, August 1 & 8. In San Jose, they are on Tuesdays: June 21 & 28, July 12 & 19, August 2 & 9. In Mount Hermon, they are on Saturdays: June 11 & 18. Email me if you would like to improve, info[email protected].

 

Pro Tools & Sibelius Instructor Certification

Next week, I’ll go through a five-day training course to become both an Avid Certified Pro Tools User and an Avid Certified Pro Tools Instructor. I’m looking forward to using this DAW with Heartfelt Music and with Valley Christian Schools. Students who take the Music Technology course at VCS next year will have UC Fine Arts credit and be certified as Pro Tools users.

 

Spring Guitar Recitals in Los Altos

We held our 2016 Spring Guitar Recitals at Bridges Community Church last week. You can watch a two minute YouTube video to see who participated. They all were fantastic! There’s quite a variety of skill levels and age levels in my Los Altos crew. Michael came all the way over from Mount Hermon just to be able to be in it. It’s a joy teaching all of them and watching them improve.
