Deliberation is written reflecting the discussions imagined by my parents concerning the purchase of my "First Piano," mentioned in the Exhibit, "Years of Piano."  I wanted to find a way to express my way of coming into music through music.  This…

IsAsItIs piano.pdf
This piece, Isasitis, expressed my thoughts about acceptance of what was and moving forward. I later made a piano-based orchestration.  Since the sounds often don't sound like the real acoustic instruments, I have included the sheet music pdf of…
