I've played the piano since I was about seven - nearly 60 years ago - and have worked a lot with singers, so I enjoy writing songs.
I've been writing music in my spare time for around forty years, some of it for local singers, some for use in church, some for myself to play with another pianist or instrumentalist. Some of it has been performed, but until I came across Sibelius I didn't have the means to make the copies look professional.
I've presented two concerts of my music in the last few years, and early in 2012 saw my musical, Grimhilda!, produced on stage in Dunedin, New Zealand. We received a great audience response.
