  • Your presentation has a clear, precise, cool style--both in the photos and audio recording. You've certainly warned viewers that composers may have intermittent, difficult, and low-paying careers, but that there are important rewards. The program also emphasizes the personal qualities that may help a composer to succeed, and I'm also wondering about the kinds of musical or compositional skills that may contribute to success. Also, are there some schools that are better for composition? How much do they cost? Your narration is a bit speedy, but very clear. Good work. --DForeman
