About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
Just a modern-day Salieri dreaming he was Mozart. I'm a music history buff. I play the violin (well), guitar (not as well?) and piano (mainly for sorting out harmonies) and compose for a multitude of instruments I cannot play! F# minor is my favorite key but I wasn't sure why until I read that "one can only well accompany the devil in F# minor."

My music is pseudo-classical and I have a somewhat traditional view on aesthetics. I believe that music is art and it's goal should be beauty and expression. I'm very private with my compositions though and I realize that's not helpful so I came here looking to meet friends and get some criticism for my work. You can be sure I'll comment on your compositions as well.
