All Keyed Up for Christmas
New Holiday Album from Amy Grinsteiner
Solo piano arrangements by Dennis Alexander.
“Unable to travel home to Montana for Christmas in 2020, I made a CD to send to my family of favorite arrangements by my former teacher, Dennis Alexander. The idea was to be able to be home with my family through music, even though I couldn’t be physically present. Mr. A and I hope you enjoy this album for many holiday seasons to come!”
