2014 - Back To The Future: As always I'm in practice mode
trying to perfect my OMB list of 60's to 80's pop songs along with working
on several new slow dance songs. Also I continue to upgrade my home studio
setup and DAW rig. I purchased a MOTU midi hub summer of 2014 and starting
to think about a fourth CD.
August 2013 - New CD Released: I am happy to announce I've
released my third CD titled "Disturb the Peace". The instrument
tracks were all produced using voices and arpeggios on the Yamaha S90XS
keyboard. The S90XS I purchased just two months earlier in June 2013 at
Sweetwater Gear Fest. Visit my CD page
for more information.
2008 to present - Always Learning: I don't take any private
lessons but do subscribe to the online site pianowithwille.com where there
are hundreds of video based lessons. I also purchased the 75 irocku.com
video lessons this year and been studying those. I subscribe to Keyboard
magazine and enjoy looking at their learn to play sections also. I've purchased
quite a few paper books over the years and also have a collection now of
digital songbooks and learn how type books.
name is Scott Haas and my one man band solo act is named Boogie Beau. I'm
located in the small village of Monclova located on the outskirts of the
big city of Toledo Ohio USA. I'm still in practice mode so I can't be hired
just yet. My back ground is computers where I did a thirty year career run
at a local university maintaining UNIX systems. After retirement I started
playing keyboard at the ripe old age of 58 with no prior music experience
to sing of. With just one year under my belt I cut my first experimental
CD and then a second CD with about two years playing experience. The second
CD of course sounded much better but still pretty mechanical. My third CD
titled "Disturb The Peace" I released in August 2013. Now at age
63 I'm still a piano playing rookie and enjoying learning and working with
music software and modern electronic music gear. Keyboard players like to
boast about their rigs (keyboard gear) and thus I have a separate gear page
for that purpose.
