good news

here is a composer that actually imagines what it might be like for a performer to perform his piece, and keeps it in mind when he is writing, and on his pod cast. More composers should keep this in mind. I am a professional musician, happy to play new pieces! however, not something that is only playable on my mac. lots of good stuff on here with a sense of humor to boot. enjoy!


These are interesting, if not in too much detail. I wish episode 6 worked. What is the fifth element??!!!

Useful tips for struggling composers

Richard's podcasts focus on nuts and bolts issues relating to classical music composition. Unlike many in our community, he does not gossip, worship prominent writers, or indulge in ego driven rants. He seems to honestly want to help fellow musicians either with career building or actual writing issues. As an older composer getting back into classical composition, these podcasts have encouraged me and validated me artistically. Thank you Richard. I'm going to start setting aside an hour a day!
