A few weeks ago, I posted an arrangement I had made of a song, as a wedding commission. The singer was very nervous, since it was her first professional work in years. I was somewhat nervous too, since I'm still fairly new to the MIDI and recording game.
Anyway, I thought I'd let you see the feedback I received. This was an email I received from the singer:
"I wanted to let you know that [the bride] called a couple of days ago and left a message to thank me for the music at the wedding. She said she wanted to let me 'how much they loved it, it was sooo awesome. People said they were the most beautiful songs they'd ever heard. As a matter of fact it brought a lot of people to tears, even guys.' So.... I think she liked it. Actually, her message brought me to tears. It means so much to be able to move people in that way. It wouldn't have been possible without the beautiful music. So again, many thanks."I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone on the forum for your patient support in helping me figure out how to use these wonderful tools we have at our disposal. Also, thanks to Gary G for putting these tools within my reach. After so many years, I'm finally able to produce the kind of music I've wanted to.
I know that this experience gave the singer a huge confidence boost, as did your feedback on the piece, which I shared with her. I know I still have a long way to go, but just wanted to let everyone know how much I value the wisdom and experience you share so freely.
