So happy to say that the move's over and that I released the "Romances For Viola" album now. Quite elated that one of my works finally hit the frontpage too, that was a crowning achievement for me and makes me feel all bubbly. So, the next few songs will probably be smaller and simpler, just a good 'ol piano etude and maybe a tenor sax and guitar jazz song or two. After those refresher pieces, the next big thing will either be a string quartet, string orchestra piece, or humoresqes for clarinet perhaps. Perhaps I'll finally go about the Frog Suite For Double Reeds soon enough.
The reason for the viola project was to snowball some practice on string scoring, one of two skills I desperately needed to work on. The idea would be to take a break from the woodwinds after Mother's Journey Concerto and develop my string scoring and part-writing skills by first working on a string solo piece to get the hang of slurring and bow markings. Now, the next thing is to work on part writing and really get a hang for that. From there, it's just writing to my heart's content.
The blog posts will cooldown for some time too now that the move's over and that there's no need to constantly update y'all on this page.
