Okay, so one year later and I haven't updated. Well, that's what I get for being incredibly busy. What's been keeping me busy? I'm glad you asked.
My position at Capilano University is wonderful! My colleagues are ACTUALLY the best, the students are hard workers, and living in my country of origin doesn't suck either. LOL.
I really do miss the U.S. = especially all my friends in California. My New Year's Resolution is to visit more often.
I don't think I told you - I make New Year's Resolutions around this time each year and not on January 1st. This is because this is the beginning of the next school year for me. Spring semester's grades are handed in, the students are all gone, and I get to stand still for a few minutes.
I'm going to tag this to a bunch of my pages so you only need to click this once. I'm going to make this an 'all-in-one' catch-up.
Here we go:
First of all, I created yet another button from which you can choose. Just not yet. :) It's the choral arrangement tab on the colourful bottom menu on the home page. I'll be selling my arrangements on my site and eventually (hopefully) on a business site.
I have a bunch of projects on my home page. In my usual ADHD style, I'm tackling a bunch at once. Specifically, the first three on the list are happening simulaneously, the remainder is after those three are done (or at least one of the three is done).
Here's the order they are being tackled:
Choral Arrangements Last Year, I told you that this had to move first because I'm being asked for some! Since then, I've been in touch with a publishing company that is considering using my arrangements. What I will do is put on this site the ones not currently on the table at AMP (https://anchormusic.com/ - check them out, they are FANTASTIC!! Once they are available for release, I'll send you over there to get them. When I do put them up here, they will be at the same price as AMP - $75 per chart which gives you the vocal parts, separate rhythm section parts AND written out bass lines, drum part, and piano part (two hand voicing)
Lessons (voice: both jazz and classical, theory, ear-training, sight-reading, improvisation, transcription). I'm available in person in the Greater Vancouver area. I'm also available worldwide via zoom.
Improvisation Just started this book! It's coming along.
E-book: put to the side for now.
Second edition of theory book: put to the side for now.
Album 2: put to the side for now.
Thank you everyone for your support and patience. I'd love to catch up on zoom if I know you personally. Let me know! :)
