My main goal in life is to fulfill my purpose on earth and help to fulfill other people's purposes, too. I want to make a little positive contribution and make the part of my world a more peaceful and loving place. I love music and it's the principal channel through which I carry out the above goals. I'm professionally and thoroughly prepared in several music areas: composition, orchestral/choral conducting, performance (classical guitar and organ), college teaching, and church music.

In my website, www.RafaelScarfullery.com, you can watch my music videos, listen to my CD's and buy them, see samples of my compositions, buy scores for downloading, download free scores, read about my music career, read my thoughts and other people's quotes that help us to become better human beings, and much more. If you'd like, send me your feedback. I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for visiting!

Thinking and working your dream

This year is a special year for me. I've always had a lot of jobs and I've always been studying. However, this year I've just been performing concerts and composing. Nothing else. And let me tell you, it is wonderful! For many years I was afraid to do this. Jobs are secure, no? Well, I don't think so because if I work from 7 am till 9 pm, as I did before, I don't have time for doing the things that I do really care. I don't have time to think, create ideas, make plans and act upon them. And the great Albert Schweitzer said that 'men nowadays don't think'. We just are very busy and that busyness does not let us achieve the activity that differentiates us from animals: thinking.

Now I spend my days practicing, composing, arranging, performing concerts, thinking, learning, and finding new opportunities to make contributions with my art. This is great! And I am being paid! My dream is my job. Well, we all can do the same and make the decision to live our dreams.
