You did it! You made it to Friday!
We have quite a number of new fans here so I thought I’d tell you all a bit about myself and my business, Luminous Sounds.
When I began playing the viola at the age of eight, I used to practice all of the time. I loved playing but, I struggled hardcore with understanding rhythm. I am horrible when it comes to math, memorizing numbers and computations. Sadly, (for me) when playing music you also use that side of the brain. So what was a mathematically challenged, aspiring violist to do?
She played along to the radio, learning songs by ear. As a result I have always had an excellent ear, can improvise rather easily, (although it still scares me to death) and play well in tune. This also caused me to have a passion for performing current, popular music off of the radio.
Luminous Sounds was born in 2014 and has since become Long Island’s premier String Ensemble. We specialize in performing exceptional arrangements of today’s most popular music using traditional string instruments and percussion. We are most often found performing for private and corporate events but also frequently play in collaboration with other bands/artists both in concert, and in the recording studio.
While driving this musical bus takes up the bulk of my time, I also enjoy some non-musical endeavors...
I love taking road trips with my husband and pup. I love trying different foods and cocktails...I especially dig tasting menus! I also have recently begun volunteering with the local ambulance corps and am excited to begin my EMT class this summer. 🚑
Thanks for reading my long post! Let me know a bit about yourself and what you enjoy in the comments below!
