Music is very important to me.

Mind you, probably almost every one of the millions of people with a website or blog says that. However I’ve always been a bit of a fogey, and the music that means most to me is probably non-typical.

You can get some clues as to what music I like from the page about my recorded music collection.

However I have made a separate page about my musical influences, those composers whose music made me want to try composing music for myself.

I have also written down some reminiscences about my musical instruments — yes, as the photo is supposed to suggest, I still own, and occasionally even play, both a clarinet and a Spanish guitar; but that isn’t the half of the story ...

What music have I actually written? That is for my page on composition.

Also, a major area of musical interest for me has been musical theatre so there is plenty to read about that;
see IPH and the theatre and My involvement with Opera Omnibus.

Finally there is my Introduction to piano playing for beginners
