Musical timeline:

Grew up in a town of 600 people - graduating from a class of 13. The town pastor, who lived across the street, was my piano teacher and changed my life. Shortly after my Grandpa Webster passed away (who was an accomplished piano player, entertaining for local weddings and dances), at the age of 12 - began the piano journey...or it started me. Learning from the late Art Cooper, stretching with original sheets of Alley Cat, Never on Sunday, and Maple Leaf Rag, he did what great mentors do, never let the fire in the child go out...and he pushed me hard.

In High School, I wrote a Fourteen Piece Band Song. The 5 minute song titled "The Passing of Time" was played once...and hasn't been played since. While at the University of South Dakota, released my first solo piano album in 1999. A year later - co-created a new course at U.S.D. called "The Business of Music".

Then off to Burbank, California and started my working career at NBC Studios, for Access Hollywood. Associate Producer for several Televised events, I then went back to obtain an MBA, while pursuing music. In California, I wrote the solo piano album "Beyond". A decade later, the established Reviews New Age from Spain, would name Beyond #37 of one of the Top 50 Piano Songs of All Time.

I continue to operate SoloPiano.com and run The Stream at SoloPiano.com hosted by Live365.com.
