Some music links:
- A very rich source of specific information on music as well as useful other material is at
dolmetsch online; just try the "music theory"
link under the resources tab. Links to other excellent sites, such as how to improvise jazz.
A beautifully crafted site with fantastic resources.
- Apart from playing the violin I also do a little teaching, arranging and composing,
and have found score-writing software indispensable; I use a terrific program called
Capella, which costs under £100. Try it (free demo download) and buy
it at Software Partners
They have a range of very good music programmes as well as other useful software. Not only that, but top-rate
technical support. I had a problem in January 2010 with an old version of the
Capella-scan music recognition software that they resolved over a few email exchanges within an hour!
- Do you need a string quartet for an event? In the 70s I played quartets once a week at Pizza Express in Coptic Street, and still play chamber music frequently with colleagues, in concerts, at weddings and parties, and just for our own enjoyment. Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Bach, Cole Porter, Bernstein..... email me at the address at the bottom of this page if you're interested.
