    Series: The Etherea Cycle, Book 1
    Genres: Fantasy, Science Fiction
    About: In the wake of the Great Calamity, the world of Etherea stood divided. Three distinct realms, one forever shadowed, one drenched in light, and one caught in the grey between, battled for supremacy. A fragile peace now exists. To preserve it, two emissaries from each realm are chosen to partake in an epic quest: the Trials of the Innermost. The six Truthseekers must learn to look beyond the birthplace of their companions, or risk failure as they face challenges designed to test their deepest fears. Haunted by lies and secrets in their pasts, their struggle to understand each other will take on a new urgency. An ancient threat is about to emerge, capable of unraveling time, light, and even life itself—and only united can they stand against it.

  • Classical Solo Repertoire Play all

    #Educate #Empower #Elevate
    Here are my renditions of solo classical works I've played through the years. Hoping my videos #Educate students/viewers who are studying some of these pieces and be one point of reference for piano teachers. May they #Empower you to listen to other pianists play their own interpretations or go and seek out the music to study, too. Also, I wish for these performances to #Elevate your thoughts about classical piano music-that this music inspires you, challenges you to go after what you want (to learn or with anything) and leave you feeling better after you've listened. Will keep updating as I learn new and bring back the classics!

  • Live Performances Play all

    #Educate & #Elevate: This is a collection of live performances & recitals, recent and past. Hope the music opens your ears to music you've probably not heard before, classics that bring up memories, or pieces you (or someone you know) should learn! Also a reference for students studying some of these works. Performing for audiences is always fun for me and it's my way of teaching through my interpretations/exposing listeners to "new" music and hoping to leave them in a better mood than before! Enjoy.
