Happier this Christmas is a light, humorous, and cute Christmas song. I wrote this song while I was reflecting on the whole year of the ups and the downs in personal life and career. Thankful for every moment in life and reflecting on how much I have learned through this year. This song talks about how important it is to realize those moments where things didn't work out but it turned out to be the best for us. How it was hard but we need to forgive and let go in order to heal ourselves. How the broken turned into a breakthrough. My hope in writing this song is so we could end the year stronger and walk into the new year with a new perspective and new spirit.
As a composer, producer and pianist, I seek to complement a visual story with music. Being adventurous and bold while having fun are
paramount to my success as an artist.
As a piano teacher, I foster a welcoming environment for my students. With lots of encouragement and patience, I help them find courage, confidence and joy in their musical journey.
