Social Media News

Monday 3rd July, 2023 will see the closure of my LinkedIn account. If you’d like to keep in touch, do message me your email address and I look forward to inspiring each other in our futures.

I feel as I move forward with plans for 2023, this is a necessary step as this will free up more time for:

Piano practice and performances.

Writing inspiring Blog Posts, Guest Posts, Tutorials and Books.

Figure Skating practice, performances, tests and exercise.

Developing this website to inspire you.

I will still be available via e-mail, Viber, Telegram and look forward to keeping in touch with you all, albeit via a different channel.

I believe by concentrating my efforts on my web site and your individual messages, all our lives will be more efficient as relevant information will:

Be available quicker


in one and only one place,

which avoids any confusion.

Music News

Just begun learning “Lullaby”, (For Edna Trident Hornbryce), composed by Raymond Yiu. My initial thoughts are, what an inspiring piece of music, complex yes, different yes, however, well worth spending time learning and adding to your repertoire list.

Having lots of fun learning “Flowers”, from “Snow, Moon and Flowers” composed by Peter Sculthorpe.

Figure Skating News

Recent change of day appears to be working well as this allows for more practice. This week saw enjoyable lessons, the addition of exciting new technique, and Rink Social time. Always lovely catching up with friends you’ve not seen in a while, isn’t it?

Welcome June and summer sun!

A red rose to inspire your June 2023

What did you achieve in May and have you set your goals for June?

As for me, indeed, I do, lots of them! But that’ would be telling, wouldn’t it. Lets just say, I’m planning:

Expanding this website,


Continuing with Book editing. Currently I’m working on an updated "Table of Contents" and sorting through notes.

Things I’ve achieved so far this month:

Pet project News

Everything is complete in second draft format. I know I’ve kept quiet about my pet project, let me explain.

Not one, but two smaller projects under one roof. The roof being “Tutorials”, the smaller projects contained within being “Music”, and “Saxophone” tutorials.

Book Project News

Completing my Pet Project in second draft allows me to forge ahead with my Book project, which is now full steam ahead. Currently, I’m reading old notes and articles in order to create a “Master” Table of Contents. As soon as I’ve completed this, I’ll be looking a chapter placement and begin to sort things appropriately. Let the fun and mayhem begin!

Technology News

I’ve finally taken the plunge and gone all in on the “Apple One” subscription. Currently, I am enjoying my “trial”, and am pleased to say the additional storage has already been greatly appreciated.

Other useful plus points are:

The seamless integration with Apple’s Ecosystem, if you are all Apple,


The convenience of everything being located, stored and accessible “Under One Roof”.
