  • jess you should opload some music...
  • Hello Jessica,
    Thank you for adding me
  • Also, I would love to write a piece for your orchestra. I was commissioned by the Warick Symphony in RI and wrote a piece for them and actually got paid!!!! hahahaha. That doesn't happen too often!!
  • WOW!! I wish I had an orchestra at my disposal.... I miss college. I am in RI. I'll send you a PDF of the score if you are interested and don't mind printing it out, my printer broke, or else I would send you a copy.
  • My only advice is to stay true to your vision and write as much as you can. Sometimes I write orchestral music, but let's face it, it's hard to get that stuff played. It's better to write for small ensembles and friends who play, because you really only learn after a piece has been performed. Our art differs from visual art because it never reaches fruition until it is actually played and not just ink on a page. So now I am going to pimp one of my pieces....hahahaha.... You wouldn't happen to be interested in playing a woodwind quintet of mine? Never hurts to ask. Noticed you played clarinet. -Pete
  • Very refreshing to hear some one convincingly writing in a traditional way. I have been listening to so much Mahler lately, I'm tempted to completely abandon my avant-garde ways!! ;) -Pete
