Included in these downloads are some teaching materials that I hope may help you, some true anecdotes from my time in the music business, a little music-related humour, some exclusive sheet music files for you to try out on organ, piano and keyboard, plus lots of new mp3 music files for you to listen to. By clicking on the titles below, you'll be linked to www.box.com and there you'll be able to stream them to listen, or you can download them. The audio files feature me playing, both live and multi-tracked, on various instruments from 1974 to the present day.
Please report any broken or incorrect links so that they may be fixed, thanks.
