Music Composers Unite!
l compose mainly in a classical style(l also compose and perform blues rock jazz and nonsense music).the reason l like to compose in a classical style is not because l beleive it is better than other styles, but because l beleive of all the major styles of music it is the least developed,and therefore has the most potential .
