Musical Compositions

This one is for chasing butterflies. I thought this must have been what I looked like at age four or five, trying to catch butterflies with my hands.

 

This is the first instrumental composition I ever wrote, in 1962, with the help of Bruce Markkula, who studied guitar with Johnny Smith.

 

This one is the first composition I ever wrote on GarageBand, in about 2008. I refer to it as “My Adagio,” since it has no other name.
