The only music thing I am now doing is putting up short music videos on youtube.

New tutorial on ensemble writing for big band on the tutorial page at the bottom of the list. Lots of hints and examples.

All of my music is now free to download. That includes all big band charts. If you like the charts, please donate something to charity, it doesn't have to be much, but every little helps. After all, you are getting the music for free.

Sorry, I've been late in making changes since Flash was scrapped. In its place I have now put new music players which look different depending upon the age of your browsers - rather chunky in all browsers but nice and sleak in newer ones. I hope the music players work for everyone, but just in case they don't I have retained the links to each of the tunes as a fall-back, even though you may have to wait a while for the music to play.
