(May, 2012) I started with a Conn Theater organ, then, after a few frustrating attempts with Casio keyboards, I progressed up to a PSR-7000, PSR-8000, PSR-9000, Tyros1, Tyros2, Tyros3, and now the new Tyros4. I never did take any lessons. I taught myself how to play chords to back up my vocals.
I coupled music with my interest in animation and videos. The result is the over 70 videos I now have on YouTube. All of them include my playing the Tyros3 or the Tyros4 and singing songs. (I feel that a song is not really complete without a vocal.) Many of the videos are animated -- at 86 years of age, I am a frustrated cartoonist and was always interested in animation.
Below are some of my favorites videos. Hopefully, they illustrate my "4 P's Of life-- Passion, Patience Perseverance, and Persistence.
