When I started making instrumental music, I had it in my mind to tell my life story through the progression and development of my music journey. As a child, I was considered to be "moody" and "deep". I create music to reflect these two characteristics.
My Moody Music is Instrumental in Telling My Life Story and I make music as a form of therapy to help me master my thoughts and feelings. Some people write in a diary or journal. I create moody instrumental music.
TaurusBeats.com has evolved over the years, from a small, private area showcasing a handful of music tracks, to a growing network of aspiring musicians and producers with a deep passion for telling a life story through music.
As i have grown in my life, I recognize others on this music journey and the similar struggles with life and expression. Although my eyesight is diminishing now, I see the beauty of each Life Story I have been blessed to encounter on this journey.
TaurusBeats is more than beat making and music production. TaurusBeats is about helping others on this life journey to "strike a chord" and "connect emotionally" with someone else in order to positively inspire, influence and impact lives through music.
TaurusBeats is about Life Story Music.
My music has changed over the years, reflecting the many changes that have taken place in my life. You can hear what I'm talking about if you listen to my earliest collections (My Soundtrack and Final Hour Music) compared to what I am making now (Common Grace, Westward, Moody Grooves). Listen to my instrumental music and you will hear how my life has changed over the years.
I started out making beats with Propellerhead Reason back in the year 2000. I'm still making beats with Reason and I'm moving more into making music with full orchestration, solos, improvisations and all that wonderful stuff. (I'm no pianist - I stumbled into playing piano/keys while trying to figure out creative ways to tag the music I make.)
I'm blessed to be able to capture my progress through this life journey in music and share it with people all over the world. What I originally intended for private reflection, God has redirected to people and places I never imagined.
Through this moody instrumental music I hear, feel and see my life. I'm learning that other people are having the same experience. I am blessed even more so because of the listeners, subscribers and friends that this music has introduced me to.
God made me and put this passion for music in me. God introduced me to Himself through Jesus The Christ. God allows me to make moody instrumental music...for such a time as this.
I can be a Moody dude when I haven't eaten in awhile. I forget to eat when I'm creating music and making beats.
When I'm Gone, just remember this...God tried to reach you and introduce you to Jesus, The Christ, through Moody instruMental Music and a moody dude named Taurus.
Grace is extended to all but Peace is only found in Christ Jesus. I hope you get it.
Grace and Peace!

Taurus - ur stuff is the *ting* man i'm tellin ya.
I also learned that your a drummer - me to!
When I was a kid I used to play around with the piano/keyboard in the 80's/90's (26yr old now). But I can't read music - I play by ear, just like you. You hit the pads & keys, (i gotta mpd32 to!;) in the same manner as me - it flows.
I reckon we can play steel drums - even tho we never have! or maybe you have - i don't know!
I'm luvin your youtube flix - keep em comin dood.

Dear Taurus,I was searching on the internet to find out how I can possibly learn how to compose music. I write alot of lyrics but have the slightest clue on how to create music for them. Anyway I came across your website in the search engine and after listening to all, I mean every instrumental on here, I just had to tell you WOW!!! Your music is so heartfelt. Absolutely beautiful. And I must say very inspiring!!. Hopefully someday I can find a way to let myself be heard through music. Good Luck in all you do.Sincerely Deena
