Citizens of Logan Pond Book Giveaway

Hey all,

I’ve had lots going on my life recently, foremost that my 15yo son was diagnosed with cancer. This cancer hit us from out of the blue–which I suppose cancer usually does. Luckily, he’s doing great and he has a phenomenal attitude. Plus, I love being able to spend more time with him now that he’s home for the next six months, undergoing treatment.

As you can imagine, this little hiccup has given me lots to think about–and do–besides books and music. And yet, strangely, it’s also given me lots to be thankful for. One thing I’ve been most thankful for is people. We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, prayers, and support from friends, family, strangers, and even many of you! It’s meant so much to us–and him.

To show thanks, I’ve decided to give away some FREE signed books.

So . . .

Free Christmas Sheet Music

It’s that time of year again. It’s the most . . . won-der-ful time . . . of the year. I know it’s too early to think about Christmas. (Way, way too early. Seriously store people, you need to settle down. We don’t want to see Christmas trees before we put our pumpkins out!) But, this is the time of year musicians start planning carols and Christmas melodies to perform under starry lights.

So…

Like I did last year, I’m offering all my Christmas music for FREE for this week. Yep. Free.

.

HERE ARE THE SONGS:

(I’m not able to offer my other Christmas number, For There’s A Savior Born for free, but you can still check it out here.)

.

How to Get FREE Music: 

  1. Go here.

That’s it.

Hopefully it’s not too confusing. Getting free stuff shouldn’t be hard. If it is, leave a comment below, and I’ll figure out how to get it to you.

Thanks! Merry almost (no, not really) Christmas.

Last Day for Free Music!–Happy Halloween

(giving)

Just a reminder that today is the last day you can get my sheet music for FREE!

Tomorrow, it goes back up to a whopping $1.65 a piece. :)  Okay, that’s not that much, but hey, free is free.

Right? 

Thanks to everyone who’s already requested music. I think I’ve given away over 150 copies, which is awesome!

So…let your favorite musicians know and let your not-so-favorite musicians know, too. All my sheet music is free until midnight tonight. My music is either religious choral, vocal, and piano, or else classical-style piano stuff.  The only song I can’t give away is For There’s A Savior Born.

To get the free music, simply email me and let me know what songs you want.

The list of my songs and a few audio clips are here. Pick as many as you want. 

Alrighty then.

Have a Happy (and hopefully warm and dry) Halloween!!!

Free Christmas Music!

(giving)

It’s that time of year again.

You know, the time that stores start selling Christmas stuff before we can get our Halloween decorations out of the basement. Drives us crazy, right? I can barely keep up with one upcoming holiday, let alone three.

But…today I’m going to be a hypocrite.

I’m a piano teacher. And a choir director. In both instances, Christmas has to start early. I give my piano students their Christmas songs around the middle of October, and my choir usually starts Christmas stuff the end of September (I say usually because this year we’re WAY behind schedule, but that’s another story). Starting this early is the only way to have perfection–or close to it–by Christmas.

Forgive me if you’re an anti-Christmas-music-in-October kinda person. Maybe you’ll forgive me if I give you something for free.

Here’s the deal. I’ve written a bunch of songs, and I’ve arranged even more than that. Several are for sale on the internet. And several happen to be Christmas-y. :)

So…

For a limited time, I’m offering my music for free. Yep. FREE!

Some is choral. Some vocal solo. Some piano. I’m even giving away my non-Christmas stuff because…well…why not?

This FREE deal will last until the end of October.

That’s October 31st. 

Halloween.

You know. The holiday we’re not ready for? 

So what exactly am I offering?

You can peruse all my available music in depth here, but for simplicity’s sake, I’ll list what’s available below. Click on the song title to go to the page with audio samples, a peek inside, and a place to buy the song. Only don’t buy the song! If you do, you missed the point of this post. Instead of buying it, send me an email (listed below) to let me know what you want.

>  Silent Night — SATB  and Vocal Solo​
>  Noel: a Christmas Medley – SATB and Piano Solo
