About
MY MEMBER PAGE AND BLOGS ON SOUNDCLICK Linked to Soundclick from YouTube, Flickr and MY PERSONAL DOMAIN My musical creativity and dexterity was a "seed" that grew into a "flower" from when I was age 14 playing piano for a large Stage Dancing School in Stockport UK, to age 30 when I'd had enough of the smoke filled rooms, late nights, and observing human nature in general associated with being a Club Organist, Dance Band leader, Seaside Holiday Centre pianist etc. Apart from a few Club nights around 1990-91 there was then a total non-musical existence up until the year 2006, but Music, and what it led to has defined my whole life. As a very active and fit Senior I do not rule out future possibilities though. All of us only have one life to lead so let's wait and see. In 2006 I became a product of internet and the MP3. Initially being a member of AUDIOSTREET.NET I was also attracted to SOUNDCLICK.COM due to it's (then!!) very active Social standing and groupings. "Soundclick Seniors" certainly pushed along my progress in attempting to regain my pianistic dexterity of my youth. My motivation was partly driven by thoughts of the opportunities my parents, Alice and Bill afforded me with music, - my memories of my music teacher Jessie Davies, and last but not least the huge input into my early life by my Dancing Teacher Aunt Joan G. Bates. Yes, I did actually start working semi-pro. again between 2009 and 2013. The progress from 2013 to the present day has been a "love-hate" relationship at times with music. But since I decided to buy a quality upright digital piano early in 2018 instead of using just "keyboards" I feel my creativity has moved forward again. Yes, of course I play "Classics" and practice with Chopin Mazurkas especially, - but I'm not prepared to enter the very different world of classical piano playing online where every dotted crotchet has to be observed religiously to avoid condemnation and ridicule. I have always been a "free spirit" in music, - extemporising musically to my personal best effect. VIDEO: Rudyard Lake, Staffordshire, England in 2009 "Cycling with Susie". We live just a very short distance from here.
