About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
I am a retired United Methodist Clergy who is now able to pursue my hobby as a composer. I have been creating songs for some 60 years - from little ditties on the piano when I was in the second grade to my wedding music in 1971 to long works in the last 30 years.

I also have programmed computers, and constructed my own music processor on the Commodore 64 in the mid 90s. This required MIDI connections with several keyboards. During the last decade I discovered MuseScore, and my music has flourished. With it, I have written or arranged numbers for our church choirs.

I am quite new at this, and have little knowledge of sampling and other techniques. My music now is limited to what MuseScore can produce. I am joining this forum site to learn more and get some feedback for my efforts.

I play the piano, but read music like a first-grader reads writing - so I have to memorize the song then bring it up to speed. Learned basic music theory on my dad's electronic organ (what with chords and the "pointer system") And I composed a number of pieces - including our…

Hi Dave

Welcome to the forum.

Thought "good will" had a nice feel to it. Also enjoyed your Methodist song. Is that your operatic voice.

Now you need to learn modulation to kick it up a gear (like I need to do better).

Cheers Mike L
