Sadly, while he played these glorious tones on the Steinway upright, people yacked loudly, eating, drinking, texting and all I could think was, “Pearls before swine.” Perhaps a bit harsh. Nice atmosphere, nevertheless. Ben says it’s a salon-style vibe.
Nevertheless, after what happened recently in Texas, the horrible elementary school massacre, and the shootings in Buffalo at the grocery store, the music came to me as a balm, and a healing. I so wished many others could be so comforted by it.
The Debussy pieces he played were especially touching and lyrical evoking a feeling of bliss and tranquility. It felt like you were out taking a walk in nature.
So now I’m using this WordPress to update my music life. Part of being me, is being a radio broadcaster, a singer-songwriter and a music teacher.
I do have a music teaching studio call Zents Music Studio, but my life is really a studio of sorts. I’m learning everyday.
Although I’m looking forward to a bright musical future, I also want to discuss great singing technique, guitar and piano which I teach. But also there’s the lessons of living.
As a writer and songwriter there are stories everywhere you go, from the smiling old woman who curls her hair too tightly that you see at the grocery store, to the way you feel about the young guy who likes to use the electric wheelchair/shopping cart around the store even though he’s healthy.
There’s also the matter of psychology that comes along with being a performer. You can’t deny that people compare you as a singer-songwriter, the way you sing, the way you play, and the songs you write. Also, there’s no denying the CD’s which you record, and produce are always being judged.
