Music software 'more efficient for composing'

A composer finds digital software far more efficient.
Great deals on musical instruments

One of the advantages of music software is the opportunity it offers users to compose their own pieces with relative ease.

And even those who are accustomed to using old methods can experience the benefits, as veteran musician Michael Oliver tells the Wiltshire Gazette and Herald.

The 70-year-old has now stepped down from his role teaching the Wiltshire College string orchestra, which he held for 50 years.

He spoke about how the music industry has changed during this period and explained he has come to rely on music software for composing.

"This is quicker and more efficient than the old method and there is no risk of smudging ink," Mr Oliver stated.

He plays the viola and violin and explained it is relatively unusual for a string orchestra - rather than a symphony version - to be such a success.

It allows a range of abilities to progress and work on their musical skills, moving on to more difficult pieces when they feel able to do so, the veteran noted.

The string orchestra performs a variety of styles, ranging from baroque to contemporary pieces and is open to those who are "moderately proficient" on the violin, cello, viola or double bass.
