Glenn Hoffman, a native new yorker whose city upbringing caused him to become a profound realist, has used music to express his inner spiritual longings. While growing up, he was mostly exposed to instrumental music, so he has learned to express his musical ideas within this venue and utilizes the many voices of the synthesizer to speak for him. During the past fifteen years, he has begun a spiritual journey that has opened up his mind and heart to new people, places and cultures. Glenn has been working in New York as an instrumental music teacher. As a teacher, he has always been able to impart to his students the power of music to speak directly to the soul. Glenn hopes that his music will appeal to all listeners, as each person might evoke mental pictures or use the music to merely relax, unwind, or de-stress. Here is what some broadjam members wrote about the piece 'awake' 'I really like this piece. It is one I could listen to over and over again. It is so peaceful and inviting. I could also hear this as a background piece in a movie.' 'Beautiful chords and accompaniment, almost like light Henry Mancini. Very listener friendly.' 'Love this piece! Wonderful!!!' 'Beautiful music and beautifully played.'
