Thanks for listening, Randy.
I only work with smaller ensembles in my comp lesson, but I think I'm getting the message for larger groups.
The largest problem I work with is to avoid too many people at the same time. This takes the clarity & tone colors out of the picture.
It's still a matter of how much salt & pepper-or even lemon-at any one time.
Thanks for listening, Phil.
I don't attribute fame to myself in any way.
Think of Composers who's style can be easily reecognized(for the most part):
BACH, HANDEL, MOZART, BEETHOVEN, TSCHAIKOVSKY,ETC.
I think the music reflects the person, and the person affects the music.
