This was an exercise in writing for a string quartet.  My goal was more in writing a solid piece rather than doing anything extravagant.  All comments are welcome.ThanksContinue

String Piece

I've been toying with the theme of this piece for a few years now.  It's a version of the Hebrew hymn/prayer "Ani Ma'amin".  There's just something about it that appealed to me.  While working on…Continue

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 background is in education and performance. Trumpet was my major instrument. I have performed with symphonys, chamber groups, big bands, combos, and even picked up elec bass and traveled with a country band. Worked a bit in the studios when live players were needed also.

I taught primarily at the high school level.

My desire to compose came from spending many years as an arranger back in the day of pen and paper, (followed by attending rehearsals to fix all the oops!)

I am now working to fill the gaps in my education as it relates to composition, and trying to develop beyond the I-IV-V7-I mentality. (It's getting better I think!?!)

I discovered many years ago that ego is the biggest obstacle to learning, so any comments or criticisms are not only appreciated, but welcome. I look forward to both. I am also working to learn DAW and use of the computer for production.

I greatly appreciate the kind words, Tim.  I'm listening to your "Elegy for Strings" as I write this message and I must tell you I'm very impressed!


So good to have met you on this site.

Thank you for the feedback! I do not have much experience with orchestration, so I am very grateful for your critique. I haven't touched that piece for a while but will be making adjustments to it as it comes along.

Thank you, I've never heard of claude bolling and for you to say I sound like someone i haven't heard makes me feel unique.
