Tim Beringer replied to Tyler Hughes's discussion Agilitas for Horn and Piano
"Tyler,

"I work with college students frequently. I'm sad to report, 40 years has made a very big difference in the landscape. With yearly budget cuts and numerous other factors this no longer likely to be true. The overall talent curve has changed…"

Tim Beringer replied to Hunter Bolton's discussion Strings Speak for Pizzicato String Quartet (with Score and Finale file!)
"I'm sorry to be so direct and I don't mean to discourage you from continiuing, but If you submit this, they will not even look at it more than 10 seconds.  It isn't anywhere near ready to submit to any school of music.  It's simply illegible. I'm…"

Tim Beringer replied to Hunter Bolton's discussion Grace Steps Off the Curb (Revised) for Piano, Bass, and Violin

"I said in another thread; "A major scale is just another set of pitches.  Tonality is just another algorithim."

there is no debate really once you thoroughly understand this.  I would go as far as to say there isn't really much atonal music at all…"

"I must admit, I was quite surprised after listening to the mp3.  I poured over the comments first (there were so many).  I really was ready for some bleep/squeak/squacking nonsensical cacauphony.   But I'm sorry, this is simply NOT THAT WEIRD.  I…"
