Brandon Pearce’s Music
I have always enjoyed music. I started learning the piano when I was 5 years old, and voice a little later than that. I started teaching piano when I was 16, and have sung in numerous choirs over the years, and directed a few as well. At one point, I considered becoming a choir teacher for a living. I’ve also been writing music on and off since my teen years, mostly for piano, but lately I’ve incorporated other instruments. You can hear some of my recordings below.
Here are some of my newest pieces. You can listen for free here, and download or purchase (by donation) the recordings from my BandCamp page.
Emily Pearce’s Music
Our daughter Emily is also a musician and singer. She plays many instruments (piano, guitar, ukelele, celtic flute, and a little violin), and loves creating inspirational and fun music. You can hear her latest album, “Reinvention” (released Sep 2020) below or on her Bandcamp account. You can also follow her on Spotify or iTunes. She’s also created music videos and animations to some of her music, which you can see on her YouTube Channel. She has some additional music on Sound Cloud as well.
Here is a video of a concert I gave at our (temporary) home in Bali in 2013, where I played some Classical pieces, as well as some songs I’d written, including one I sang with the ukelele. Note that the concert is divided into two separate 30 minute videos. Part I is Classical pieces, and Part II is mostly stuff that I wrote.
In my earlier days, I enjoyed writing arrangements of hymns for piano. I grew up Mormon (and left the religion at age 30), and as a pianist, became very familiar with the hymns and loved to improvise them as I played. Here are some of my more complete arrangements.
Note: These were recorded in Garageband through a MIDI interface, and not always with the best quality piano sample. And for the vocals, I used a cheap microphone headset designed for chatting/Skype, etc., so really not ideal for singing. There’s hissing in background, and the quality isn’t that good. So I didn’t spend a lot of time trying to perfect these recordings. But you’re welcome to perform them yourself by downloading the sheet music at the bottom of the page.
