Today I’m sharing a video of me playing one of my first compositions I wrote for the new album, “New Beginnings.”
New Beginnings was the VERY FIRST song I ever shared a video of me playing on social media!! If you want to check that out, see my first music blog post here. This song really was my “launch off” point as far as finally having enough courage to decide to finally record my music on a CD & also share my music on the internet (gasp)!
This song was written shortly after my husband & I decided to become homeowners!! We had just moved into our new home & one evening, Brandon was out officiating a basketball game, & I found myself home alone with nothing in our living room yet but my piano. I sat down & inspiration hit me like a lightning bolt. In less than an hour, I had composed this entire song (might be a record for me)! It was just my piano & me, in an empty room in a new house that we were about to make our home, full of new memories, new challenges, new happy times, a new piano journey for me & new beginnings.
Hope you enjoy this one!! Thanks for visiting my blog!!

I thought it was about time to share some of my music with you! As mentioned in my first blog post (here), my new-found passion for composing music was my main inspiration for starting this blog. I’m still on the road to discovering the best way to share my music & how to go about recording my songs, but in the meantime I thought I’d share some videos of me playing some of my stuff 🙂
Nothing too fancy to see here… just me jimmy-rigging my iphone on the sofa to record myself in my yoga pants doing what I love. Ha!
This song is called “New Beginnings.” I wrote it in less than an hour after moving my piano into our new home in early February. My trusty ol’ piano & a single lamp were the only 2 things in the room at the time. I was home by myself, & I just sat down & let the creativity & inspiration flow. Soon, “New Beginnings” was born. The title was inspired by my overflowing gratitude for all of the “fresh starts” in my life. New home, new health journey, new-found passion for composing music, new ideas, & new discoveries yet to be found in my life.
Enjoy & Embrace New Beginnings!
