My Music

I was blessed to have been brought up in show business with both parents having been professional musicians. My father, Claude Scheiner, Sr. was an accomplished jazz guitarist and played with many notable greats including being the original guitarist with the Art Van Damme Quintet. My mother, Patricia Scheiner, was a classically trained pianist who later switched to jazz as well and also performed with my father.

The following arrangements and compositions are my way of thanking and honoring them for their patience in trying to teach me music.

 

Avinu Malkenu (Our Father our King)

 

C is for Carole (Dedicated to my wife who was gracious to marry me and bless me since 1979)

 

Exodus

 

Hasidic Fun (Some fun I had with an old melody)

 

Hatikvah (The National Anthem of Israel)

 

Oseh Shalom (Part of the Kaddish liturgy). I expressed this as a plaintive cry of the heart for shalom (peace) in dark and trying times.

 

Shabbat Shalom (A jazzy version of a congregational favorite)

 

Shema

 

Sing Hallelujah (a modern jazz arrangement of a classic melody)

 

Synthetic Jazz in F (Ok, this is just me having fun with the amazing Roland RD-300SX keyboard)
