"Yes, I still work with pencil and paper but now put the bits and pieces together in the DAW which allows me to try out and adjust more sustained harmonies, deal with problems of balance, and on. The DAW produces a notation score but it's so…"

"Hi Tim, I think you have a good piece here and I did enjoy it.  I think there are things you can do to improve it, but that's only my opinion and only you can decide what, if anything, needs to be changed. So from my view things that you…"

"Hello Tim, First of all, congratulations on taking that oh-so-hard step of placing your work in front of us, I know how difficult than can be. I listened to the whole piece and the overarching impression (flawed as it is with only one listen) is…"
