New Album “Serenity” is #12 on both U.S. & European Top 100 New Age Album Charts

Wow! Simply amazing. Here’s the whole story in my December 2017 Newsletter:

I want to again mention that all the music on SERENITY was inspired by “Steps To Knowledge- The Book of Inner Knowing” by Marshall Vian Summers. You can download the book for free at:

‘Serenity’ now #8 on ZMR New Age World radio chart!

So exciting! ‘Serenity’ moved up from #42 in August to #8 in September on the ZMR New Age World Top 100 radio chart!
I also just learned that an Australian magazine “Conscious Living” is including a great review of the album in their Spring 2018 issue. Woo hoo! What a thrill. Thanks to all!!! 🤣

Review of “SERENITY- Peaceful Music On The Chapman Stick”

Just received a great review of the new album “SERENITY- Peaceful Music On The Chapman Stick”. It was written by Dick Metcalf of Contemporary Fusion Reviews and he has some very nice things to say about the music.

It really helps to know that this new musical direction is being welcomed by listeners. There is just so much noise in the world today that I think that everyone needs a little more serenity so this was my way of helping to create some. I hope you’ll enjoy the new music.




New album: “SERENITY – Peaceful Music On The Chapman Stick”

I am very happy to announce the release of my newest album

SERENITY – Peaceful Music On The Chapman Stick“.

It is available in both physical or digital versions at:

I’ve been going in a completely new direction with my music the last few albums and I find myself craving more simple, peaceful, relaxing music that slows things down in a good way. Listening to music like this makes it easier to think clearly and helps make more time for the things that are worth making time for! At least that has been my personal experience.

Listen to the clips yourself and let me know if there’s any magic in this new music. If you like it, please order the CD or the digital download and tell me what you think.  I sincerely hope that you’ll enjoy this one hour respite from the noise of the world and want to keep returning to it time after time.  ☺
