"Hello John -
I really like this! I am a great admirer of the bass clarinet and wonder if you play the instrument itself, as you seem to have a great understanding of its technique and emotional potential. I am looking forward to hearing this with…"

What a blessing to have a friend who is a web developer! My wife and I still have our website up from our former profession, (raising 100% grass fed American Bison and selling the meat), but it is old now and needs updating, (like telling…"

"Hello Kristofer -
Thanks for the info. I did create a playlist using the tab and the yellow font direction. I only see four playlists shown on the playlist page. Where are the rest of them to be found? Can they be seen like the first four? If so,…"

"Hi Jon -
I agree. I spent most of my life listening to music with speakers in a moderately live room, and would love to still be doing that! (And listening to it at naturally full orchestral volume when appropriate.) Now, however, the neighbors…"

"Hi Rowy,
Thanks for listening. I appreciate it. Yes, I have to imagine that what you are using to listen is not quite up-to-snuff. The headphones I use are ESS 422. They are very clean across the audio spectrum. Unfortunately, they are no longer…"

I just posted a playlist of this three movement piece, but I can't see how anyone could find it to listen on this site. So, I'm bringing it up here as well. (If you know how to find a playlist, it is on this site.) A brief description:The 1852…

Ken Lindner replied to Brandon Schwab's discussion Seven Up for Saxophone Choir and Piano by Brandon Schwab
"Hello Brandon,
I really enjoyed listening to your new piece for sax. choir. As I was listening I thought: this would be a great piece for a college group and then noticed it was written for a Florida university. This should be great for that venue.…"

"Hello HS -
Not to worry about not having time to listen. When you get to it, I'd be interested in what you think.
In the meantime, I've just finished a piece for brass quintet that I call "All You Can Play, Brass Buffet". It is four movements:…"

"Hello Again David -
Thanks for your clarification about Dorico Elements. The cost is much more my speed and, from what I read, is promising. My only problem is that it will cost $100 to find out if it will work for me. For example, I've recently…"

"David -
Thank you for commenting on the music. I appreciate it!
As I mentioned before, this was submitted as a piece for a pops concert in Australia. It is not "serious" music, but just for the fun of it. God knows, in today's world, there is plenty…"

"Hi Folks -
It seems that there is more interest in discussing software and equipment here than the music submitted. Firstly, I wonder what kind of equipment you use to listen to the music posted on this forum. I personally use a good pair of…"

"Hello folks -
Based on several comments here, I downloaded MuseScore to try to get an initial impression. Notion does allow exports in the Music XML format, so I did a quick import of a brass quintet piece I'm working on now into MuseScore, just to…"

I just listened to your Scottish Suite. It certainly fits the picture you provided, the Scotch lake and mountains - very dream like and peaceful. In fact, I was listening for a usual "Scottish Fling" song in the piece and wondered…"

Bio

I am a graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, (1971), in bass trombone and education.

I taught in the NY state public schools for several years, (grades 4 - 12 instrumental music), after which made a career in high-tech. Industries (computers, medical devices), working in Quality Assurance and Reliability Engineering for various corporations including Digital Equipment and Intel. All the while I continued to perform bass trombone and tuba in "B" orchestras, bands and brass ensembles, anywhere rehearsals were evenings or on weekends.

After retirement from the corporate world, my wife Kathy and I raised 100% grass fed American Bison on our CA ranch and sold the meat in Los Angeles farmers markets for 15 years.

My composing is self-taught. I began to compose in the early 1980s and continue to the present. My approach to composition is as Debussy described: "There is no theory, all you need do is listen. Pleasure is the law." I write what I hear and what I like.

My music is mostly tonal and driven by forward motion. I like a good melody and enjoy orchestration.
