"Lovely orchestral work. Nice bass rhythm. I appreciate that resolution appearing at 1:50 forming a nice complementary contrast, an effect I search myself when composing. Thank you Brandon. Kjell"

"Brandon,      Nice work.  The intro is very pastoral, a sequence of dissonances and resolutions.  At about 20 sec. I felt like there was too much dissonance which lessened the effect.  At 2:30 the piece…"

"Sounds like a soundtrack for a historical western film, very American in its feel and scope. Can be used for a film with no issues, has a thoughtful patriotic feel to it too. Congratulations for an excellent work."

"Tim,      Ah, concert band, I played trumpet in it for seven years in jr. high, high school and college, and we never played anything nearly as difficult as this. Look at the instrument ranges, trumpets hitting high C's…"

"Brandon,  BRAVO!!!  This is a wonderful piece for Concert Band/Wind Ensemble.  It uses the forces and instrumentation of this ensemble very well. Greg, concert band scores are written as transposed scores and up until recently, in the…"

"NotePerformer is a Sibelius users best bet. Because Sibelius is a notation software and not a DAW like logic or fruity-loops, it is difficult to find a good sample pack that integrates well with it, and NotePerformer actually does it all for you.…"
