    Smile I bought the Adler Book & Cd

    I have very little classical music, so I thought the CD's would be needed and well worth the price in the long run. All of it 3rd edition.

    Thanks for all the advice and help.

    I took some music courses 25 years ago. In fact one of my Professors, Dr Downey, just passed away. I didn't stay with it from the academic side, but have contined to write music (songs) for some time. Now at age 51 I'd like to pursue it intently. At least until I get busy again with my day job, which shouldn't be for 3 or 4 months. So I'm going to try to homeschool this. Boughht the Rimskey, Piston, Forsythe books. Just bought Technique Orchestration Workbook by Kennan, Kent; Grantham Donald for a workbook. Adlers workbook was rated poorly. Hope the workbook is a stand alone.
    I like to write songs, and I'm going to try writing my own background orchestrations for them. I'd love to do some choral things.
    We'll see.
    All I know is - I'm not getting any younger, so if I'm gonna do this music thing I better get at it. Sometimes when I'm driving my van during my day job and I hear some beautiful orchestration I get overwhelmed by it, then I ask myself- What am I doing working so many hours? Shouldn't I be writing music? It's in my soul. Don't know if anything will come of it - it's just what seems right, like the way I was wired.
    We'll see.

    Wow you gotta lotta reading there - which books do you think are best? I got the Adler workbook here and frankly its a bit of a dissapointment. I still like the Adler text though.
