"Hi Sean, I've been writing music for 40 years and I couldn't do it with learning how to write. If you want others to play your music you have to learn how to notate it. You don't need college for that, and it depends on what sort of…"

Sean Pollaro replied to Michael Bates's discussion Curvetude, for solo piano
"I cant believe no one has commented on this yet. This piece is very touching and awe inspiring! Beautifully melancholy and yearning for the past but at the same time looking forward as if on the brink of some ground breaking new paradigm. It's…"

"I love the way you characterize it haha! The whole experience really was like a spontaneous dive in to play, kind of like a kid in a sandbox. I think its entertaining because its keeps moving and changing not looking back. My severe ADHD causes me…"

"Sean, I have listened to this multiple times, and find it to be a thoroughly enjoyable madcap romp, from the key winding that starts everything to the bubbly synth as things wind down near the end! I love how you drive the piece forward with the…"

"Hi Sean, You are but another example of why I'm quite chuffed to be part of this forum, as a new member. It's great to be in the company of composers more talented than me; it will only push me to do better. I'll give you a compliment…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Sean Pollaro's discussion My first orchestral piece
"Hi, Sean, I can hardly add to others here. It's an interesting work and first effort? (I agree with Ingo here) a damned good effort, first or not!. It seems to cross with what I regard as 'light music' and you seem to have achieved a…"

Sean Pollaro replied to Sean Pollaro's discussion My first orchestral piece
"Exactly! I actually wrote a slow moving melancholy piece on harp that directly follows this. Its beautiful and spacious but I haven't orchestrated it yet so I left it out. This definitely would benefit from some valleys to accompany the massive…"

"Wow, Note Performer looks cool! I multi track with midi in Logic which is an entirely different animal. I'm interested in writing a piece using the traditional scoring approach so I may try this software out. Perhaps it will result in a more…"

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.
My name is Sean Pollaro. I am a life long music lover and writer.. ive never deeply studied music composition but I've always had a natural ability to hear and write moving music in many styles. I am a full time director, videographer and film editor and I have unfortunately for most of my life put my true passion, music on the back burner. Yes I have written music for money in the form of jingles, indie film scoring etc. but for the most part I have suppressed my gift and expressed my musical instincts through other mediums such as video and film.. My music has always been a very personal sensitive thing for me, perhaps because I'm scared of its power. Im joining this forum because my heart is screaming to bring my music out of the shadows and into the light. I have questions and just need helping hands to guide me on how to go about this.
