    I Lost It

    I use to compose music. I had about a 1 year break and it seems like lately I cannot write anything new. it almost seems as if my creative juices have run dry. For the last 6 months I haven't written anything and it frustrates me. I need some sort of inspiration or I may just...

    Just Wish I Could Publish It...

    I write classical music for fun, but I just wish I could publish it. Mind you, some of it is good. I use Noteflight on the Internet. Look it up if you want to write music too.

    Set the Night to Music

    I love to sing, and I write poetry and would so love to be able to put all that to music and get the chance to play and share my stories with people through music.  Maybe someday I'll meet up with someone that will colaberate with me.. :)

    Is it just me, or does anyone else wish main stream music was still made with real bands and instruments instead of computers and turntables?
