Hello and love to all,

I googled myself (yes this in now a verb and has meaning!), and this wonderful topic came up!

Maybe you (or THE) angels were listening and helping, either way, I have found out what teaching music means to me, and have found the perfect outlet! No, not being on stage with Madonna or Sean Combs (I'm not against that if it helps me teach music!!!), no, in my case, nerding out like Schubert or Bach.

In addition to learning amazing fine points of composing, like, what Beethoven learned from Haydn, what Mozart learned from CF Bach or what London learned from Handel, I've learned how to stay the course and be careful to avoid traps like what made Bizet's or Schubert's lives unsuccessful.

Bach only had a dozen or so of his songs published in his day! Now he is the standard of many things including Fugues, Choral techniques, counterpoint, and his 2 books of 24 Preludes and Fugues was the groundbreaking beginning of playing in any key! - yet in his day was rather unknown!

The thing I've learned is: perfect your art, craft, devotion or whatever it is, and if the rewards are to come, fine. If not, fine also. Bizet's opera Carmen was such a flop that the disaster likely killed him. That I will avoid. Schubert had revolutionary friends (one executed as a traitor!) so I won't do that (sorry to my revolutionary friends! :cool: ) - I am an Evolutionary, not a Revolutionary.

I'm so happy that before I shared links to the insides of the CDs, now I can share links to the insides of my books! For my dearestestest friends here and any friends of yours, under Creative Commons license, please study hared and thoroughly enjoy:

Somehow the angels were listening (THAAAANKS!!! luv ) and now I am embarking on the next levels of teaching music and playing. I am designing ACTIVE MEDIA like books you can turn the screen and it recreates new TOC (Table of Contents) and links automatically, and I will be finding out how to collaborate using Google (all praise the Great Google!) in ways old Mozart never though of!

That is enough for now, but you can always hear my music in a nice player at

Hi and blessings, all,

The funny thing is, wanting to do it is much easier than the real thing! So to be completely legal, I can't include pieces I was including to teach things.. see this discussion:

http://imslpforums.org/viewtopic.php?f= ... 232#p39232

I can't include Satin Doll because.. who knows! Someone will sue me for trying to teach music? I guess so. :(

I'll have to find something else, I guess this is where classical is better - copyright has expired, whew! OK Mozart, wha'cha got? He he..

Meanwhile I just want to share with you all, I've been updating my books, learning tons of beautiful songs and writing scores for so many of my songs! The original intention of this post IS SATISFIED! Not it's just the sort of drudgery of being 110% legal, dotting every i.. whew!

A magical piece I rearranged to be easier to play, I think the title means Mysterious Baracades:

http://webpageexperience.com/process/FC ... icades.mp3

http://webpageexperience.com/process/LesBaricades14.pdf my arrangement!

I think in my case, THE LEARNING of the music, thanking the artists like there Francoise Couperin is my new friend.. luv THIS is the benefit, my goal being met just right! If and when The Universe decides to make my lessons more available to people, yay! For now I just keep scoring and playing! https://www.reverbnation.com/teovincent4

Love 2 u all,
Teom
