A short while ago I posted a recording of the piece Trumpet Fantasy by Matt Dury. Take a quick look here if you haven’t seen it (opens in a new tab so you can listen whilst you read this!)
Recently I was honoured that Matt decided to dedicate the work to me. Whist that is great, it is not the purpose of this post. I wish to share with you that you can now purchase a copy of this music for yourself. Below is a link to a website where, for the menial price of $3, you can download the sheet music and learn to play it yourself.
Personally I see this method of self-publication to be one of the best ways that an independent music professional can get their work out to the world. Often musicians are only exposed to the generic mass-produced books that are promoted by the exam boards and that is a shameful dis-service to the international music community. My rant about the music education cartels is yet to be published so you’ll have to keep checking back for that one!
Now, do your bit for independent music professionals and support my friend by buying his music!
