melodies from the heart
Music For All Occassions
Although many people have a favorite song which
reminds them of a special time or occassion in their life, very few have
a song specifically composed for them. Special events occur all the
time throughout our lifetime and we are always looking for a way to celebrate
with our loved ones and friends in a way that will be forever etched in
their hearts and minds. Many of us remember the very first song our
mom sang to us when we were little or the popular song that was playing
when we fell in love. Music has a way of highlighting special times
that can only be recaptured with pictures, fond memories and such.
was begun to offer a special way to show our loved ones and friends just
how much we care with a song. This music is personalized to use names,
dates, and other personal facts to enhance the moment that is being celebrated.
I believe that music comes from the heart. Music is at the core
of our being. Music is always in included in celebrations. It
is a joy and privilidge to be able to create original tunes to make another
person happy. I am so fortunate that all of the original songs that
I have composed for others have been a hughe success. I would like
to write a song just for you!! This song will be custom made in any
style that you wish. It can be jazzy, bluesy, classical, gospel-like,
or similar to a show tune or ballad. Let's not forget a rhythm and
bluesy style or even an exciting rock style!
