Started Oct 30, 2016 0 Replies

So, I'm new here, so I figured I'd share what I'm working on at the moment.  It is nowhere near done.  It is a piece of music based on the events of the life of King Arthur and the knights of the…Continue

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.
So, I've played brass for some eight years. I started composing sometime during that, and now I consider myself decent. I took a music theory class, although I don't really use the information often. I've been composing a before that, and I have my own methods.

I've learned a lot in my ~3 or 4 years of experimenting. (Probably actually less than 2).

I produce mostly tonal music. My music is not, and never will be serious. I take it as a hobby. I have about 112 pieces of music that I made sitting in my documents folder. Most of these are unfinished, and last 10-30 seconds.

I am here at this site to get criticism from actual musicians, because most of my friends are not, and almost all of my music friends are in college.
