The Journey

Happy 2014!

I just wanted to share my latest composition "The Journey" with you.  I just entered it in the Composers Today program that I entered last year.  Professional composers review your piece and then offer feedback.  I got outstanding results and constructive criticism last year for my composition "Remembrance".  I highly recommend the program for any young composer who is looking to get feedback/advice on their piece.

I used the website Noteflight to notate my piece this year.  I can't express how much I love this program, it's free and totally user friendly!  Check it out!

Hope you enjoy my composition :)
