Sundance Composer's Lab Recap

I had the good fortune to attend the Sundance Composer's Lab and I learned a few new things, and heard a lot of old things again. It's like there is a certain theme that occurs throughout a learning process. And once you hear it, you hear it everywhere. Like the number 23, or something.

So I have a lot to learn, and a lot to still figure out for myself. Good things are coming as long as one can persevere. I mentioned luck being a big factor in discovery, but by the logic of "preparation meets opportunity," that says to me that we make our own luck.

New Website Store

I have been trying to figure out a better way to get my music out there, and the first step is having it available for performance. There are so many steps in the role of a copyist, and it's amazing how many little errors one keeps finding. But now that some of the pieces are done, the store can officially launch.

I vlogged about this and also gave a preview of a new piece for marching band, for which I was working on the mockup. I will probably do a breakdown of through this piece in a future blog.
