My first newsletter should be out by now! I have emailed it individually to several selected Concert Band directors. The newsletter includes links to the Australian Music Centre (who represent me and make available all scores and instrumental parts of my compositions), and also to my videos on youtube. The Concert Band channel name is "Stanhope Music for Concert Band" and contains eighteen works so far.
As explained in the attached notes on the channel, this is intended as a guide for performance. Viewers can hear each work while following a miniature score. Small print, but clear enough if you have a big enough screen!
Other news: my younger daughter Marlena has been leading a twelve-player viola section in the Australian Youth Orchestra recently. I think she is heading for an outstanding career; naturally I am very proud of her.
More news next month, especially regarding feedback to the newsletter.
