Music Composers Unite!
as a much older composer I listened to your work and it revived some of the innocent wonder of artistic creation. I enjoyed the ride. Whatever academic training you get, don't let it ever strip you of your natural impulses. Sure, you could learn a lot about form, development, etc. But there is charm in your music as is, and, whatever way you go as far as developing your craft skills, just aim to be more and more you - let those first impulses guide you, let the intellect be servant to those impulses.
Thanks for posting your music Jacob. How about another picturesque theme - and send another piece.
