January 2013

First post of 2013!

School has started. Classes are good. Right now, I'm practicing a lot for my junior piano recital, which is February 13th. I just had my piano juries and passed, so I can officially have the recital. Piano performance is not my forte (pun intended), so I have been performing in nursing homes and for friends to get used to performing.

As far as composing is concerned, I haven't had a lot of time. But every now and then, I get a spare minute to do something... I thought I would post something I've been working on. It'll be for the Celtic album. It's just a sketch...

Thoughts? (I know, it's not traditional celtic, but then that makes me think: what do I call it? What genre is it? Maybe I should just invent a new genre and be done with it...)

After the recital, I leave Feb. 15th for the Dominican Republic (like last year) and I'll be gone for a week. Hopefully after that, I will start composing again.

Thanks for listening,

Jonathan Maiocco

P.S. I'm sharing my recital with my friend Lanae (she plays the French horn). We had to make posters to hang around the GSU School of Music, so my brother and I spoofed some movies posters. It was fun.
