My intent with these compositions was not only to create soothing & melodic music, but also to help your mind relax. I compose with specific keys & within a frequency range that achieves Alpha and Theta brain wave frequencies. This is known as the "Mozart effect", documented by numerous university studies worldwide. I have studied this phenomenon extensively and construct my music in a way to help take you there. I also arrange compositions to mimic beauty in nature, following the idea of the "Golden Ratio".
Listeners tell me how much my music helps them relax and tap into their creative side. Several artist friends listen to my music while creating their works.
Students tell me they retain more knowledge while listening to my music when studying.
Teachers play my music in classroom settings and observe the calming effect it has on the kids.
Many spas and salons have been using the music to provide a relaxing atmosphere for the clients, yet energetic enough that the therapists don't dose off ;)
I've recently been working with some music therapists and health professionals to provide music for kids with autism, elderly folks with dementia, and other health issues where professionals believe this type of music can help lower blood pressure and calm patients.
Many of my songs actually tell a story or depict an emotional feeling I'm trying to transcend to the listener. I've been working with some independent film makers to provide background music to set an appropriate mood for particular scenes.
I'm a former Detroit rocker who played in several cover bands; and headed my own rock band with guitar, lyrics, and vocals. In the late 90's I found myself using more and more classical finger-style influences in my writing, leading me to my current focus as a solo guitarist.
