"The best sound ceremony I’ve ever attended. I really felt completely immersed in the vibration. They truly have a gift of creating a space for deep healing and exploration. I’m grateful for you both."

"The music I compose for personal reasons, is the Soundtrack of My Life. I do not read or write music. It is already finished in my head, since I was very young. Sometimes five or six pieces at a time. No piano lessons, just violin in the 3rd Grade and even playing the violin then, I was playing by ear and what I heard and could not read the notes.
When I was a very young boy, I used to walk around the house with a portable record player, listening to the sounds of whales for hours. I felt like I could understand them. The Wisdom Keepers. Music and Sound is a Universal Language to me. It allows expression, communication and connection, without having to say a single word.
It is the same with the Native American Flute. What comes out is the breath of intention(s). An extension of self.
Whatever "Gifts" people say that I possess, do not belong to me. They can be taken away, as they have been given. I am just a vessel, hollow bone, a messenger. All I can do is step aside and move out of the way.
Thank you all out there for taking the time to listen, for your unwavering support and for your kindness.
Gratitude, Love and Light to All. Love one another unconditionally. We are all one. All things connected. As one."
