  • Sit, back, relax, enjoy the show and learn. This podcast could be entertaining, life-changing or both.
  • I am a children's song writer. I usually work and re-work a song until all is how I think it should be. I could spend weeks on one verse or one melody! I actually have been quite successful professionally but know in my heart that my best songs are the ones that felt slightly unfinished at the time. My challenge to myself is to write one song each day for the next seven days. I'll start in the morning and by 5 o'clock that's it! I'm done!
