Being a composer is a little like being a miner, or at least a miner of music! Sorry about the pun! Let me explain. At first you stake your claim and set out your equipment. And then, little by little you make a start on digging for gold. You find nothing, or very little at first, but eventually, if you are lucky and have the skill to find your way, you will strike the mother lode and that is when it becomes interesting.
I have found writing music a little like that! I started as a young teacher and performer and had to learn my trade. This involved much arranging of music for young voices and this gradually honed my skill base. As time went on I began to write my own music and I was able to use my experience to create what I hope is something worthwhile. Now, I only write what I want to write, or sometimes what I am commissioned to write and this has given me a great feeling of satisfaction and achievement.
Now I would like to share some of my work with other musicians in the hope that they will find something that will interest, excite and ultimately leave something of myself behind. I hope you will find my compositions as much fun to perform as I have had in writing them.
