"All different sorts of fairy tales at the same time in one language, made with great tenderness, even when talking about dragons! [...] Music and drawings attractively drenched in the amalgam that children's dreams are made of."
--- Marcel Baudet, composer and founder of Young Pianist Foundation (YPF)
I'm delighted to present to you - my first children's book! Maya's Mountain（まやの山）is a collection of eight new piano pieces for children and eight accompanying illustrations in full colour, composed and illustrated by me.
My warmest thanks to Soumik and Souvid Datta at Hope Notes for so generously helping me to realise this dream project. When I received their grant, I was asked to create something on the theme of hope. During these uncertain and anxious times, my hope is that children will be encouraged to nurture their sparkling talents as artists and that they will be able to turn to their own art as a comfort.
Maya's Mountain is now available only as a PDF!
Ever since the original print run of “Maya’s Mountain” 「まやの山」 sold out, I've been getting questions about when the next print run will be. While I don't currently have the resources for a second print run, I thought it would be nice to have the PDF version for sale for those who would like it! Perfect for the modern iPad-wielding musician!
If you'd like a PDF, please email email@example.com with the subject line: “Maya’s Mountain” 「まやの山」PDF purchase.
If you've previously bought the physical copy, then let us know and the PDF will be sent to you for free! Thank you so much for your custom!
