This week, I made an arrangement of the music from the opening cutscene of Onimusha 2, arranged for four hands. I’ve been wanting to make for a while, but felt like I needed to do some simpler arrangements before jumping into this one. I specifically decided on two pianos rather than four hands on one piano so that one part could use the sustain pedal without interfering with the other.
This is the first time I’ve arranged a piece for four hands. It was a great learning experience but I’m sure that someone with more experience could make an even more interesting version of it. I plan to do more arrangements like this in the future.
Hello, everybody! This week’s video is a performance of the piano solo version of the Main Theme from the film Memento Mori. Memento Mori is one of my favourite films – while it’s classified as horror, it’s more of a ghost story. It’s part of the Whispering Corridors series – the films are only loosely connected, but each one deals with the issues that were taking place in the South Korean education system at the time.
The Main Theme is a beautiful piece of music, and I plan on making a piano arrangement of the orchestral version at a later point (including the orchestral parts on piano alongside the piano parts).
Hi, everybody! Today I’d like to announce the release of a new video – the first performance video I’ve made since returning to England from Ukraine. This is a cover of the main theme of the survival horror game Tormented Souls. This game became one of my favourites in the last year as it engaged me more deeply than most others have recently. One reason for this is the fantastic music.
I’d already covered another piece from the same game, Anna’s Theme, and actually had requests in the comments to play this one as well. I’d actually already considered learning it as it has a really nice atmosphere.

Today I’d like to announce the release of a new video – this one is a piano arrangement of All That I’m Living For by Evanescence, based on the 2006 AOL Music Sessions performance. It was originally made for one of my pupils, who wanted to learn how to play it. That version was a little simpler, but also quite repetitive – I added a few things to create this version. Let me know what you think of it!
In the future I might do an arrangement of the song ‘Hello’, my favourite by Evanescence. I also have some other videos in the works, including some performances of my own music and some new compositions that got delayed due to the war in Ukraine.
Hello, everybody. I glad to post a new video – the first since having had to leave Kyiv due to the war. This one is a piano arrangement of the music from my favourite scene in the Metal Gear Solid series of video games.
I hope to have some more performance videos up soon, though you can imagine, a month without access to a piano for regular practice slowed me down with that.
Hello, everybody! I have a new video this week – a cover of one of my favourite piano pieces – To Zanarkand from Final Fantasy X. If you know any fans of the game, please share this with them. There’s a brief harmonic analysis in the video description, if anyone’s interested – I might do a video explaining it in more detail in the future.
If you enjoy the video, please consider subscribing to my channel.
This week’s video is a piano arrangement that I made of The Landing from Final Fantasy VIII. It’s one of my favourite pieces from the game and I feel that it captures the chaos and excitement of the SeeD exam wonderfully!
Let me know what you think of it! I’d be glad to hear your thoughts.
