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 biographical information about you as a composer):
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.
