the day it happened

I don’t know what made me think of this on my way to work today…but I did.  I was enjoying listening to Brahm’s Piano Concerto No.2, but decided to switch to David Crowder Band and have some Christian Rock on my way to work too.  My mind starting thinking about the diversity to music and my varied interests.  How did I start liking music?  I mean REALLY liking it…wanting to teach it and compose it?  Well, I remembered the time…  It Christmas Eve night 1996.  I was in 10th grade and I woke up at about 1:30am and had a song playing in my head.  Not just the melody or guitar, but the whole band playing.  I had never heard the song before and realized I had made it up in my head while I was dreaming.  It was awesome!  Kind of rockabilly, folk, bluesy, acoustic rock.  I still kind of remember the song today.  I knew then I had to write the music from my heart and mind out on paper.  I also wanted to foster that creativity in others…I guess that’s why I’m doing what I am today.  Praise God.

    That is so cool. It’s amazing how God works. I can read and play the piano and sing, but to wake up with original music in your mind is amazing!

    Keep Rocking. Don’t ever let go of that dream.
