"Hi Suzanne. I had been using Noteperformer with Sibelius, I think it does a good job of interpreting phrasing. Sounds are better than default Sibelius. I also got “Voices of Prague” when it was on special a few months ago.…"

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.
I began making music from a young age, improvising to pictures propped up on the piano. This led to "formal composing," and i went on to study composition and piano at the London College of Music.
I particularly love writing for the piano, and also vocal and choral music, but also write orchestral and chamber music. Recently I have been combining my love of poetry writing and photography, with my piano music, to make short nature videos, which have been well received by people, as well as giving lockdown "Concerts from My Music Room" of my piano music, to give others a little cheer at this time.
