    Piano Composition Contest

    Friends and Forum Members:

    Recently, I became a "Listener Award" winner. As I stated before, having been recognized by my fellow Forum members is a satisfaction that surpasses any material award and, again, I thank you.

    In my opinion, the Garritan Authorized Steinway Piano is a cherished sample library. One that is coveted by all that own one. When I won that prize, I had to confess to Gary that I had already purchased his great library. He then offered (in his own inimitable way) to present me with ANY library of my choice. Thinking this over, I realized that many of our Forum musicians are not able to purchase the Steinway for one reason or another, but would love to have one........so this is my plan:

    I'm going to give my Garritan Authorized Steinway Piano away to the winner of a "private" piano solo composition contest. Here are the rules:

    1. Contest is open to all current Garritan Forum Members that
    do not have the new Garritan Authorized Steinway Piano.

    2. Submit a piano solo composition of not more than 3 minutes.
    May be a short work or part of a larger work.

    3. Submit in Mp3 format to JCMusic@sbcglobal.net no later
    than November 5. Entries WILL NOT be posted on the Garritan
    Forum.

    4. Rendering is not a critical criteria. I realize that a lot of good
    musicians are not audio specialists so your work will not be
    judged in that area. The composition is the important thing
    and may be written in any genre (Baroque, Classical, Romantic,
    Modern, Contemporary, etc.).

    5. The entries will be judged by myself. Truse me as I am a fairly
    competent judge (two degrees in music; Piano and Composition).
    The winner and his/her composition will be announced and posted
    by Mr. Gary Garritan
    as soon as possible after the closing date.

    I hope this will be fun for all that want to own the new Steinway library. For me, the satisfaction of knowing that someone will win this sample library, which will motivate and stimulate their music production, is reward enough.

    Let's face it........Things can't be better than when one "Listener's Award" makes more than one person happy........

    Please direct ALL questions to me (Jack) at JCMusic@sbcglobal.net

    Now, let's start composing.........

    Jack,

    What a wonderful and generous offer!

    One aspect that sets this forum apart from others is the generosity of the members, whether it is giving feedback to composers, answering questions about how libraries and/or notation software works, explaining musical and studio engineering concepts, or even giving away free libraries.

    Good luck to all who enter Jack's piano composition contest!
    Best Regards,
    Ernie

    Thanks to all that responded to this point.

    I have been the recipient of so much help from
    learned individuals on this Forum that I will not, ever,
    be able to every pay it back. The individual help
    that I received has no equal in money or goods. It's
    funny how education in music production can make
    someone feel so complete within themselves.

    Wowz Jack! I'm (almost certainly) in! Just been looking for an opportunity to go back to my piano roots. That's incredibly generous of you, what can we ever do in return? I don't suppose you'd be interested in an early alpha demo of a cellphone game featuring a flying armed rodent ...
    Thanks!!
    Cheers Matt
