"Thanks again Bob and Gav! 2 things hardly anyone ever talks about when you start composing are: you have to write program notes and you have to be comfortable talking in front of an audience."

Stressing about writing program notes (asking for help)

The composition is now called "In the Heart of Our Home" which is based on the original words:Oh in the heart of our homeThere lies the start of our futureWhere dreams of the Spirit become realityIt's our alma mater,…See More

Rodney Carlyle Money replied to Bob Porter's discussion Is it harder to write fast music, or slow music?
"I know for my own compositions, "fast and slow" doesn't seem to matter concerning difficulty, but "matters of importance" tends to dominate that scenario more. For example, if I am commissioned to write a marching band show…"

Thanks for the invite, Rodney. I was quite impressed by your Sins of the Old Testament pieces. Dance of the Golden  Calf was quite beguiling. I'm currently listening to BelgianComposer's new Double Bass Sonata (http://youtu.be/c4wIy1qyf1E). Check his Youtube channel out. I haven't run across him elsewhere, but his work is consistently first rate. Again, thanks for your work.
