Music Monday // Fly to Paradise


Happy Music Monday!!! Boy do I love doing these posts! How was your weekend?

Music Monday AGAIN!! // O mio babbino caro // *with video*


I FINALLY GOT IT UPLOADED!  Like I mentioned in today’s first music Monday post, I’ve been trying upload this video to my blog all day, but I was continually prevented by my obnoxiously slow internet. But here at last, is my ‘O mio babbino caro’ cover! This is the first video cover I’ve ever done on my blog,  so I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!  Do bear in mind though– I stupidly did not warm up before making this video, and also its not the best audio. (#musicianexcuses 😜).

So without further ado– here ’tis!!

Did you enjoy it? Tell me your thoughts in the comments below!

Till next time!

Music Monday // Eternal Source of Light Divine


Hi guys. So literally ALL STINKIN’ DAY I’ve been trying to upload a video I made of me singing ‘O mio babbino caro’ to my blog, and the internet here is SO UNBELIEVABLY SLOW, and I STILL haven’t managed it! (Sorry for all of the exasperated capitals…). So instead, I want to share this beautiful piece with you– Eternal Source of Light Divine by Handel, sung by Elin Manahan Thomas.

I’ll still post my video if I can ever get it to upload, but until then, I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I did! Please let me know what you think in the comments!

Yours truly,

Music Monday // Miserere Mei Deus


Hi everyone! I’m back for Music Monday–sorry I missed last week! Today I want to share this beautiful piece called ‘Miserere Mei Deus’, performed by the King’s College Choir. This piece is based on Psalm 51, which is SO cool! This (again) may not really be your type of music, but do give it a little bit of a listen– I think you’ll be glad you did. The tone of these boy’s (and men’s) voices can only be described as angelic. (I think :P)

Oh and in case you don’t know Latin (like me!), here are the lyrics and the translation:


What do you think? Do you like this piece? Do you have a favourite piece sung by a boy’s choir? Talk to me in the comments!


Yours truly,

Music Monday // Duet No. 2 for Violin & Flute PERFORMED!


Hi everyone! Remember the piece of music that I composed and posted, last Monday? Well guess what?! The wonderful twins, Sammi and Alex, who I wrote the piece for, made a video of them playing it, and sent it to me!! I absolutely could not resist sharing it with you lovely peeples, so– here it is!

Give Sammi and Alex a round of applause in the comments! Aren’t they awesome?!

Till next time!

Music Monday // Duet No. 2 for Violin and Flute


Hi everyone!

I’m so sorry I missed Music Monday last week! Things have seriously been so crazy, and I just didn’t get the time last week no matter how hard I tried. *sigh* But this week I have something special for you! This piece is one of my own compositions, and I wrote it for a couple of wonderful new friends of mine– Sammi and Alex, who are amazingly talented violin and flute playing twins! This piece is a duet for violin and flute, and though I do not think it is perfect yet, I think it has good bones. Even though it’s a weird piece. All my pieces are kinda weird though. What is with that??

So without further ado– here is Duet No. 2 for Violin & Flute! PLEASE tell me what you think after you listen to it– your feedback seriously makes my day!

What do you think? Do you play violin or flute? Is there anything that obviously needs to be fixed with this piece?

‘Till next time!

Music Mondays // All I Ask of You


Good morning (or whatever it is where you live…) everyone!!

This week I have another favourite of mine for you all– the recording is not me, it is from the original soundtrack. 🙂 The INCREDIBLE singers are Sierra Boggess and Hadley Fraser. Hopefully next week I can get back to doing my covers– I’ve been really busy these past few weeks so I haven’t had time!

So I really hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Broadway might not really be your thing… but the song is a great listen. 🙂

What do you think? Have you heard this before? Do you like Broadway?

Love you all!

Music Mondays // ‘Andrei’ from ‘War & Peace’


Hello awesome peeples! Unfortunately, I’ve been incredibly busy this past week, so I haven’t had time to put together my usual cover with me singing this week… sorry! Instead I wanted to share with you a beautiful and sad piano piece that I learned recently. I don’t know about you, but I adore sad music!! And this piece is so incredibly simple, yet it is able to convey, with just a few notes, so much emotion. I love it. So without further ado…

I’d love to know if you like it or not! Have any of you pianists played this piece before?🎹

Love you all! You’re awesome!

Music Monday // The Phantom of the Opera


Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing one of my favourite songs EVER with you! Disclaimer: it’s not perfect. The last high notes are, well…pretty high. 😁 And also, I don’t know who the dude singing the Phantom’s part is– it’s just a karaoke track I found on YouTube. 😊 Anyway, I can’t wait to hear what you all think of this cover!

Did you like it? Tell me your thoughts in the comments! You’ll make my day.😉

Till next time,

Music Monday // Someone Like You…Again. :)


So about a month ago (I think), when I first started Music Mondays, I also posted this song– but I was in a hurry and used a crappy video app thing-y to put it together, and the stupid thing stuck it’s own music at the beginning, and I had to make it do this dumb colour collage…anyway it stunk (yes, I promptly deleted the app…). So this week I’m going to post Someone Like You again, this time just the audio, because I’m now on Soundcloud. 🙂 I’d really love to know what you think of it, if you are willing to take the time to comment and let me know!

What do you think? Are you enjoying Music Mondays?

Till next time!

And welcome to another Music Monday! Sorry I missed last week…I’ve been really busy lately–and I’m busy right now too unfortunately, so I don’t have time to write a super long blog post… But today I’m sharing my cover of the beautiful Scottish tune ‘Loch Lomond’ with you. I hope you like it!

What do you think? I’d love to know your thoughts in the comments!
