Hello, everyone. My name is Clovis B. I would like to tell you a little about me, and why music is my life.
Music began for me at the age of 6 when my father brought an upright piano into our home in Chicago. For the past 30 years I have been actively teaching, composing, and performing.
I feel music is important because it is a very rewarding way to stimulate and exercise all the parts of the brain. As Van Cliburn has said, "Music is architecture, mathematics, philosophy, narrative and spirit. No one's hands are perfect. Working out passages that are difficult for you is an analogy of life."
Music evinces, in an immediate and beautiful way, the power of the mind - the often hidden ability in us all to achieve things beyond what many think possible.
The ear is a very special sensory organ. Through our ears, we can perceive many things that are not visible to the eye, but nevertheless are important aspects of life.
Silence is what gives sound its life and energy. Time spent in the imagination with ideas strengthens them in awareness and prepares us to be confident in their expression. The best composers faithfully guide us to experience the grace and power, the stillness and movement of music. Supreme serenity still remains the ideal of great Art.
I look forward to meeting you to discuss your musical interests, and helping you to achieve your goals.
Thank you for your consideration.
