This is one of my piano freestyle videos. This is what I do to train my ear and develop keyboarding skills.
One of the most rewarding things for me when I make Moody Instrumental Music is what I call the "learning journey." I didn't start out knowing how to make beats, produce music, play piano or keyboard, use Propellerhead Reasonn, use the Akai MPD32, record videos, or create beautiful music from the rough ideas in my head. My "learning journey" is what has allowed me to do all of what I do musically. The journey has been long - more than a decade now - but my music clearly prooves that the journey is worth it.
