The Process..

This past spring, we decided to create an original ballet based on
"Alice in Wonderland" for our students at West Hawaii Dance Academy.

First and foremost, we needed to have music that depicted each of the
characters and sections. During ballet class, for about a month, each
time Megumi played a piece of music that seemed to fit, I would stop
her and say "make a note … we can use that for the Rabbit …"  and on
and on ...

That is how it started.  The music ended up being so fun, students
began requesting it for their regular ballet technique class.
Amazingly, once the ballet was completed, all of the music, in it's
order of the story, also fit perfectly to accompany a ballet class!

So, now, we are excited to share this wonderful music worldwide. We
plan to have Disc Makers "master" the music, and produce the physical
CD's, and have CD Baby and Amazon post the music digitally on their
websites for sale.

In the meantime, we are seeking the funds from Kickstarter to pay Disc
Makers to produce the CDs.

We hope you will support our project!

Mahalo in advance for your support!

Risks and challenges

We consider our project "low risk".
This is our second CD, and has been made "by request" , so we are confident that once we have our "seed monies" in place, our CD will be ready to "rock -n-roll"!
