"Hi

No problem and I have not downloaded it.  I write and orchestrate a lot of my own work and others.  Good luck with it though. I just thought it could be an interesting piece to try with my little orchestra when we return to playing!

"Hi
It has an interesting melodic line in the right hand but after a while the 1,2,3 in the left hand got a bit tedious for me.  I am sure when orchestrated it will have more happening in the accompaniment.  I realise that it is a waltz and that is a…"

I’m sorry you have a ‘thing’ about sharps and brass instruments - perhaps if you were an orchestral player you’d have a different view - I personally don’t see this as a problem - more of a solution to creating the effect that I…"

Just thinking something like this key, surely has to be easier to play in?"

"It would only go up to E flat and in the Big Band world that is not that high. I have this thing about sharps and wind players. G major would be my limit with a purely wind ensemble with more than a few players. But that is just me!"

  • Hey Kevin,

    Sorry I missed this. When I come on to the MAIN page, nothing shows about messages or requests. Today I wanted to message another member and noticed your request so here I am replying. I'm honestly not a rude person! 

    I'm not on here as often as I'd like. It's quite busy all round what with practice and composing and work stuff....

    Anyway, wishing you the best and - stay well.

  • Good luck with adding some jazz to your repertoire!
