My first instrument is the piano, and I have a strong classical background, though I do not have a degree in music. As I got older, I took up playing the bamboo flute - as the piano is not very portable, and I wanted to be able to play while waiting for my bus. Later, I took up the panpipes, which I found better than the flute for playing while I walk, and during the cold winter (as they do not require the use of the fingers). Lately I have been attempting to teach myself to sing and play drums (primarily the cajon). My musical interests broadened as I got older to include Ragtime, 'Oldies', folk music (mainly on the panpipes), some pop music, and miscellaneous modern composers, including a number of the composers on this site. I have written some 30 or 40 pieces of music for the piano in a classical, semi-modern style. I am self-taught as a composer. Sadly, I have not composed much music since the late 90's, though I improvise daily (especially on the panflute).
All of my sheet music here has been created with 'MuseScore' 1.3, a piece of freeware which is available at:
