Hi Steve! This Composer's Forum is only about 5 weeks old, and we're already up to 123 members. One way to participate is to write a blog on your page about what you are up to. It will show up on the main page for others to read. Otherwise, go to the forums and groups and start some discussions. I'm sure there's a lot we could learn about composing from you!
Welcome Steve. You're the 111th member of this forum! Post some music and photographs of your setup! Take a look at the group discussions... there's some serious theory going on here (way over my head). I'm your friendly composer support specialist, Ed!
