Included in these downloads are some teaching materials that I hope may help you, some true anecdotes from my many years in the music business, a little music-related humour and some odds and ends. There are some exclusive sheet music files for you to try out on organ, piano and keyboard, plus lots of mp3 audio 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 download them or, in the case of audio files, just stream them and listen. The audio files feature me playing, both live and multi-tracked, on various instruments from 1974 to the present day. I’ve also added links to the first four in a series of Youtube videos featuring me at various organs, starting with three at the classic Hammond model X66, plus one video/audio clip of me playing a duet with the late, great Brian Sharp during our 1979 Kawai tour of Japan.
All the following links were checked during the website’s latest update but things can sometimes go wrong, so please report any broken or incorrect links so that they may be fixed, thanks.
