Just wanted to drop a brief note here to let everyone know the status of my various projects:
- Book 1 videos: I got the edited files from the filmmaker yesterday, and some minor tweaks need to be made. She has assured me that the final, final files will be here on Tuesday. Then I can do the things I want to do to the videos before making them available to purchase. I’m hoping for 2 weeks from today!
- People who selected book perks in the fundraiser: your copies of Book 1 are either already in your hands or on the way.
- Book 2: The repertoire is almost all set in stone. The concept pages are done. The book will be available in May. Videos in June. (The filmmaker and I have learned a lot from the process of making the Book 1 videos, so it should be a much quicker process next time.)
- Digital piano recordings and blogging: Last week I received a shipment from Kawai of a VPC-1 midi controller. I have been having great fun with it and Pianoteq. I’m working on blog posts about both of those products. I’m receiving a copy of Ivory American Concert D tomorrow. Can’t wait to play it and write about that too.
So, that brings you up to date. As you can imagine, it is a challenge to fit all this in with 40 piano students, a three year old son, and a dog with medical issues! I am doing my absolute best to keep everything moving forward consistently. I am really appreciative of the interest and support shown by so many people I’ve been hearing from lately.
