Since retiring early from playing in the local Brass Bands, Julian was at a loss what to do in his spare time. Along came Sibelius 3 and his time was filled again. He enjoys arranging classical music that he would like to have played himself. He has written several of his own pieces but most remain either unfinished or he is dis-satisfied with certain aspects. In the future he intends to concentrate on these un-satisfactory and un-finished pieces to balance arrangements and original pieces. Julian has had many a request to arrange specific pieces for various ensembles, mainly school bands which he gleefully accepts at no cost to the ensemble.
