A Song To Remember

It all started in 2002 with "One Seed" the children's story and song, a simple 'little book' that has now been used in schools and homes around the world. It is a story about life, and how the courage of one has deep and far-reaching impact.

QUILLS: Articles - See Index of Articles

From interviews with world class musicians to the neighbour next door, here are inspiring stories of achievement, success, tragedy, struggle, discipline, humour, love, passion, hope, new ideas, old ideas, and life. Most of the articles have been published in newspapers and magazines and on the internet as promotion for artists and orchestras.

Read about: bassist Gary Karr and his love of chocolate; of the hilarious opera comedienne Natalie Choquette; about the harmonious Celtic Tenors from Ireland; or about the amazing life of jazz singer Dee Daniels while listening to her singing; and the Grandfather of New Age Music - the late Paul Horn, and so much more...
