Hi, my name is Philip. I’m 55 years old, and started this blog in April 2008. I live in Penang, Malaysia. This is a beautiful country of about 28 million people. It’s just south of Thailand (we share a border) and north of Singapore.
I’ve just written and published my first e-book entitled LEARN TO PLAY THE PIANO IN 12 LESSONS. It’s a great way to start playing the piano on your own (and yes, you can do it!) Written in plain and simple English, it’s perfect for beginners from 14 to 92. You can get all the details at my website. Don’t forget to look around, there are some goodies there, like my free e-book, 10 MYTHS ABOUT LEARNING THE PIANO. Download it, free of charge.
I’ve been teaching piano privately for more than 30 years now, ever since graduating from the University of Arizona with a B. Music degree in the early 80’s. I’ve also become quite a computer geek since the early 90’s, starting with Windows 3.1 and now I’m using Windows 7.
When I’m away from the computer keyboard, I play cocktail music at the E & O Hotel here, twice a week. A very nice and relaxing job, if I may say so (thanks, Mike!) Well, I’ve played cocktail piano for as long as I can remember.
Last but not least, I’m a staff member at BigBlueBall. If you want to know everything about Instant Messaging, this is the place to go to. Besides, it has a ton of other cool stuff to check out, including Social Networking, the latest phones, a really nice BigBlueBall lounge, etc.
Alright, think I’ve just about completed the intro. I’ll be posting often (I hope). Please use the Contact Me link to submit any messages or comments to me. Enjoy browsing through my blog!
