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'm a percussionist for a small local symphony. I have a BA in music education and taught high school band and choir for fifteen years before moving into the health care field due to budget cuts in the music programs. I began writing seriously about five years ago and am looking for honest feedback on my works. Composing is a serious hobby for me. I spend between 20-30 hours a week at it. I'd love to study composition privately and see if I do have any sort of future in it.

Greetings Tim.

I like the orchestral textures used in your compositions very much. Keep it up.

Very best,

Larry Elliott

Your Bio sounds a bit like the movie Mr. Hollands Opus. Too bad about the budget cuts. But sometimes it's better to do something else for a living, that way music is your reward and recreation.

Listening to your first piece. I can tell you're a percussionist! But you handle the rest of the orchestra well also. It's great when a new member posts such accomplished music. you will be a valuable member.
