Los Angeles-based pianist, vocalist, composer, and educator, JOHN PROULX (pronounced “Proo”), is thrilled to be releasing his first book of piano pieces, Soundscapes. The genesis of this book was birthed from a culmination of John’s life-long passion for music, composing, and arranging. Proulx comes from a musical family and was exposed to folk and jazz music through his parents and grandfather. John was also inspired by the melodic piano music of George Winston in its simplicity, beauty, and accessibility. Proulx’s new piano book is a culmination of his many influences and also serves as a teaching tool for his students. Currently, John is a piano and vocal instructor at Cal State University Long Beach, Cal Poly Pomona, and jazzvoice.com. John’s recordings are available on I-tunes, Amazon, and wherever music is sold.
