Yesterday I met with a composer, Romeo Melloni, who, among other things, instructs at a local community music school. The school is aimed mostly at kids but has some adult programs. Anyway, we talked, he looked over some of my scores, which he analyzed (pointing out good and bad parts), and he said if I was interested he could take me on as a student. I’m interested.
I think I’ve posted before that there is no way I could ever go back to school full time so this is the next best thing. The school does have some resources, though not like a major music school. So as part of my lessons we will talk to different instrumentalists, have them play my music, etc.
I’m pretty excited about the prospect and look forward to my time working with Romeo.
(Yesterday was a good day overall – I met with my future composition instructor, I saw the accountant and I don’t owe Uncle Sam anything for the first time in years, I got a star on the GPO forum… )
