Composer’s Symposium 2017 (Master Class)

Thoroughly enjoyed my week at the Composer’s Symposium in Atlanta!

Here’s a video clip of my Master Class piece with excellent critique!  And…I didn’t even get ambushed by Robert Sterling!  Woo-hoo!  😉  (inside joke)

Please excuse the raw video…lacking my video editor on laptop.

Judging panel from left to right:

Robert Sterling, Marty Parks, Brad Hix, John Parker and Joseph Martin

    I love the song!! Don’t change anything.

    I have some of Dino’s music (not that I can play it) but he puts the easier version above the line. I think that would be better personally for me anyway and keep the original on the the same line because there is more to it. That’s my musically challenged thought. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing this video. I found the judges’ comments to your outstanding arrangement very helpful. I dabble in arranging/composing myself, even though my ability to play is often above my ability to write. My arrangements have to be kept playable due to the fact that I get so nervous. I play for a small church of about 30 – 40 people. Discovering your website has inspired me to arrange hymns using some of your styling ideas. I think the oasis idea is a great one. Hoping you will consider doing this to your “Then Sings My Soul” (HGTA) arrangement. I have been trying to come up with my own version of this song since I can’t seem to find one that is both meaningful and playable. I appreciate your ministry.

    Thanks for sharing this, Jenifer! I noticed that you added more flourishes than are in the arrangement I have (which would make it more difficult for me to play, although I hope eventually I can play those things more easily!) Have you changed it or did you just play it differently for this occasion? I thought they had good suggestions. Love the piece, one of my favorites!
