Piano Chronicles of a
February 2, 2016
The first chapter of my latest piano
work is ready! This music is inspired in
the greatness of space, the human drive
for exploring new frontiers and our place
in the cosmos.
The first movement: "Introduction: In
Search of a New Horizon", will have
its own video, an instrumentation
(orchestrated) version and a
piano solo one as well.

The One and Only Self-Help Read You Will Ever Need For The Rest Of Your Life (Music Required).
October 15, 2016 - By Leo Perez.
An Ode to Function
You read that right. Maybe you even suspected it. What you will read here, is without a doubt - in my view - the only thing anyone, from any background, will ever need to know in order to succeed. I know that sounds like a big claim, and with good reason: the “self-help” industry is huge! Some may think one must read and understand these volumes of elaborate books and talks out there in order for us to become successful or happy. Why then write so many books on the topic? What do Tony Robbins, Robert Kiyosaki and Zig Ziglar have in common? They have all made millions off of the topic, and when millions are made, volume is important to keep the money flowing. That’s all there is to it. Nothing wrong with that, but money must be followed when understanding is desired.
[...] there is nothing wrong with enjoying reading or listening to positive books or talks. Some of us may find these energizing or at least encouraging. That’s fantastic. I mean it. This post is not about devaluing that which a lot of people may find comfort or pleasure in. However, sometimes there’s value in “trimming the fat” and getting to the core of the issues. That’s what I am going to talk to you about.
Keep the music going...
We know that most people no longer pay for music. This is a problem. Even more so for musicians of jazz, classical and instrumental music (just like me!) that lack a large commercial demand for their music. A lot of us don't lack the merits, but we do lack the financial means to give you more of what you like.
And yet, here you are now, reading this message, listening to the music. You are part of a very select group of people, a minority (although a big one in numbers) that understands and appreciates the difficulty and value in this work. If only half of you donated a small amount consistently, we wouldn't need to ask for your support, and we would have 3 or 4 times more music and content for you.
Bringing you (ad-free) the music and content of this website takes hundreds of hours, practice, technical knowledge, love and hard work. If you find joy or any kind of value here, please become a Supporting Member with a recurring monthly donation of your choosing:
