Song For …
You’re out there, somewhere…
Waltz in C sharp minor Op. 12, No. 2 (F.Chopin)
Learning the piano from an early age, I found myself drawn to the timeless music of Chopin.
When I picked up a guitar for the first time, little did I know that it would become a life-long addiction.
Silence Your Insolence
How dare you!
If this is the end, I’ll just have to be strong.
Feelin’ good – like a monkey swinging through the trees.
