    Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ffqbo8UYtg ---- This tune is my deepest connection to my dad , who recently celebrated his 70th birthday... Whenever my dad, the maestro of jazz, would start playing this, I would melt and give up anything just to be able to play like him one day... one day when I grow up... I practiced this only for one month, I admit. Because ever since he stopped playing "Moonlight Serenade", I had almost forgotten it... And a month ago, while doing my daily reading of music, I bumped into this piece again. All the memories and gratitude came back and this is my attempt to transfer my dad's birthday into Valentine's Day, and just share this moonlight from our studio... By the way my dad stopped playing around my current age, and then, 20 years later, while visiting us in Canada, he just played this tune, perfectly in Bill Evans style...

    Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdRfsD0XnzM --- This musical became one of my favorites and many of my students took vocal lessons from me to sing this song and then performed it at our semi-annual recitals (and quite nailed it!). So, I thought, it's time to actually record my own version of it. Though, I am never satisfied neither with my singing nor with my playing, "Never enough" - it's like my mantra, to keep going and keep doing what I love with the person I love. Who (the person) decided that one "copy" of me is not enough, so he "cloned" me. Oh, and for the first time we used our shiny new AKG414 to record the vocal and the piano. I hope you will enjoy it! On a different note, we keep working on our most ambitious album ever. 12 tracks are fully composed with two more on the way to complete the story. I hoped to finish everything by the end of the last year but, oh well, the life got in the way - we had recording sessions for several clients, including my own student. I am sooo looking forward to finishing the composing step and moving onto the recording stage.

    Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1EEWAwzYZk --- In these last days of 2019 I want to wish you all Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! and I hope you will enjoy this jazzy take on the famous tune :) This year has been very fruitful and busy. My husband and I released 3 full-length piano solo albums and one EP with 4 jazz quartet tracks. We had 23 recording sessions in our studio for other composers and clients, arranging and recording our piano and my vocal for their songs and instrumentals. We also started scoring a new documentary. And, btw, the opening song from the first documentary that we scored two years ago along with a track from "Notte" album that we released this year - they both were nominated for Hollywood Music in Media Awards! So, we went to Hollywood! For the first time! It was such a cool experience sitting next to some of A-list Hollywood composers like Alan Silvestri. We didn't win the actual award but even being nominated next to such names as Hans Zimmer, Alan Silvestri, Ellie Goulding - that was a huge deal! We're also working on what will be our most ambitious album. Not a piano solo this time! It will include our hang drum, piano, vocal, cello and some other instruments! We've finished composing eight tracks and are yet to compose 4-5 more tracks for this album but this will be just the very first step. After finishing all the compositions we will have to transcribe them into scores and then record live instruments. We even upgraded our recording equipment to get a better sound than we had before. Enjoy the Jazzy Jingle Bells and I wish you a lot of musical adventures and achievements in the upcoming year!

    Video: https://youtu.be/JjHDdbdR0sg --- It was kind of a personal request coming from my husband: he wanted me to sing this song that always leaves him in tears... Then he asked me to make an arrangement for a choir. The version he loves has strings on it but he thought to make an all acoustic version in our studio... and since we don't have strings.. but have my voice.. so he got this idea - to record a "choir" of me. It was the first time we actually arranged nine voices!! Seven voices singing the harmony and two more singing short melodies. And, well, the lead vocal as well. It was a nice challenge. We hope you'll enjoy our rendition.
