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 have been writing music since the early 1970s, and still have the bulk of my compositions dating back to 1973 (beginning with Book 2—all but a page or two from Book 1 has been apparently lost, but it's no real loss...really). But in the 1990s, I had gotten too busy with other things to continue composing. But I decided to get back to writing music by March of 2006, and in short order I discovered Sibelius 4. I'm using v.6, now. (Finale was my desired software for over a decade until I bought it and used it and found it less-than-user friendly. Sigh... So I switched to Sibelius and I'm not looking back.) While I have not yet been paid for any composition, I have been published (once -- in an online magazine) and I have composed for several theatrical productions. But mostly, it's for my personal expression and in the hopes something bigger will happen with the pieces someday.
