Some new works!

Well!  Life has certainly changed recently.  I am finally done with school!  At least for awhile anyways, that is a relief.  With more time on my hands, we will see if I can get some more music posted online.  As for now, I have two pieces that I am posting.  The first is one I was working on about a month ago and finally got around to recording.  This is it,

The second is a bit of a fun one, and I hope I am not being sacrilegious, but I do quite enjoy jazzing up the hymns.  So here is a short jazzed church song.

Bored on a Sunday with Grandma

After having a lovely dinner conversation with my Mom, Rose, Lori, and Grandma most importantly, me and Lori felt quite inspired to write a fun house piece for the piano.  Welcome to crazy town =D

A long day

So today has been a long day all on my lonesome while Rose was out traversing the rocky lands of Green River Utah, but this has also given me a chance to focus all day on finishing a song that I started a week or two ago.  I decided to call it Hidden Walls, no rhyme or reason to that at the moment, but that is just what I feel when I listen to it myself!  Anyways, hope you enjoy.

Testing the system out

Alright I figured it out! Anyways, here is a piece that I wrote about two and a half years ago during my religious mission in Tokyo Japan. This is an arrangement of Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing originally written by Robert Robinson. This is one of my favorite religious pieces and I have really enjoyed putting my own feeling into it. Here it is!

My Composition Workshop

Welcome and Hello to my composition workshop!

My name is Anthony Frank (Which I assume most of you already know as this blog is mainly intended for friends and family, but we'll go ahead with introductions anyways), I am currently training to become an American Sign Language interpreter at my collegiate program but have always had a love for music.  More than just playing music I am fascinated with arranging, composing, and improvising.  Until today however I have constantly run into the same problem over and over again.  What is that you ask?  Well, I will create a piece of music, maybe get tired of it after a while, forget it and then when I want to come back to it later, I don't remember it! (Much to the dismay of my wife) So of course, why not record and store online?  The perfect solution!  And then I have the opportunity to share it with others (Which is more nerve racking than you might imagine!).

Just as a quick note, many of the links on the site are not currently up and running, and I am working on remedying that ;) so hopefully soon we can see something a little more cohesive put together here =D

So without further ado, I present you my composition workshop! *Big Dramatic Effects* Which currently has no music... well I am working on that!  Promise to get some up soon :)
