Don't skimp on arrangements. I've played in plenty of professional and amateur pit bands made up of a few keyboards( covering orchestra parts) and some brass, winds, drums and guitar.
In my view, write good music and people…"
"Hey, thanks for listening!Very good point. The reason for the orchestration was originally rooted in a business minded study (minimal musicians and space needed opens up more performance opportunities etc) but something I have struggled with is…"

Hello all! Been a member on this forum for a few months and have watched from afar, but thought I would get involved and submit some of my own music for critique... I am primarily a bassist playing all kinds of contemporary music, but with a secret desire to write for classically inclined musical theatre (something I studied a little in my final year of university).

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
Originally trained as a ballet dancer at the Royal Ballet School in London, before succumbing to a back injury and gravitating towards music in my late teens. Went on to study for a BMus (hons) in music performance (my main instrument being the bass guitar), but with a large practical project focused on composing for musical theatre.
Currently interested in musical theatre, with several ideas for shows and musical excerpts written! Aside from composing at home I play bass for a blues rock band in the UK (and sometimes Europe/occasionally beyond...).
