My moments of joy come whenever I work with Bobby. He is such a talented pianist. Bobby always says things that lift my heart up. With his musical training and my lack of it – I am beyond flattered whenever he compliments my songs. Examples of his enthusiasm come through with comments like: “Judy, do you realize what an amazing key change you have here?” or “I love this chord – please play it for me on your guitar” or “Your song is incredibly moving and I want to know all about it.” No wonder I loved working with him!
Bobby has been helping me add piano to the ten songs for a new course to be released soon on Insight Timer. It is named “Songs of Healing and Hope.”
For every one of the ten songs, we create two distinctly different piano solos. One follows the melody and the other I call “ambient.” The ambient clip isn’t actually ambient – it is just a creative interpretation of my song. Bobby has been very successful working on film scores and his improvisations always blow my mind. He gives me multiple motifs and each one is magical. The pleasure of editing his ideas to create a solo piano journey for my song is indescribable. Here I am, a guitarist – and now piano editing has encompassed my energy.
My new course is almost finished – we have only one song left. The piano clips add so much to my lessons. Trying to decide where to add music to my speaking is truly a creative joy. I also plan to create a piano meditation track of all the songs. I have already released a medley of the songs with guitar, as well as guitar and piano. The link to more about that is on my last post.
My song “In The Past” ends with this line: “Things that made me cry, gave me wings to fly.” To read more lyrics, stories, and hear performances and other recordings: https://myjourneysinsight.com/in-the-past/
“Wings to fly” is a lovely image that especially helps me during this difficult time. Please stay safe everyone.
Below are the two clips from my course lesson for “In The Past.”
