As Long Islanders, we all love Billy Joel’s music … so join us for an inside look at his music, life, and creative process. Led by music connoisseur Ned Dorman, this will be an opportunity to truly listen to and appreciate Billy Joel's iconic lyrics, which are set to extraordinary melodies.

After 40 years in the cheese business, Ned Dorman now has the time to concentrate on his true passion: MUSIC.
He had always shared his diverse music library with friends in his home and he truly relished the joy and comfort it brought them, so he decided to share this with a larger audience.
Ned developed a music appreciation series, "Sounds of Music!" that he has been “conducting" at several JCCs on Long Island and clubs in the Boca/Palm Beach area.
Each session covers a music genre or artist, giving historical perspective and insight into the creative process. Through clips and performances, the audience finds new joy in each composition. It is sure to provide information, smiles and fond memories. It is a real feel-good time, so especially important now.
Billy Joel, the Piano Man, is one of the best -selling music artists of all time and one of the greatest rock stars who doesn’t look or dress like a rock star! We all know his classic songs, but this will be an opportunity to truly listen to, and appreciate, the lyrics. Joel uses real-world events and personal experience to write beautiful poems and set them to extraordinary melodies. So if you missed one of his 118 shows at Madison Square Garden, this is an opportunity to see and hear the great Billy Joel.
