MUSIC is the synthesis of art and science, a COMPOSITION of physical force and emotive affect born from vibrations of matter in Pythagorean ratios brought to consciousness through a coded THEORY of acoustic symbols. From raw-throated RUDIMENTS of song springs music's endless dance with HISTORY, finding in ingenious inventions such as the PIANO and CLARINET ever-more varied tones in which to weave its COUNTERPOINT of ritual and repose. Music is art yearning for the eternal, its birthright the vaunted HARMONY of the spheres realized through the great masterworks in which the virtues of rigour and imagination are preserved as its ever enduring LESSONS.

This website is an archive of articles and resources for my music studio between 2013 and 2016.

Below is an additional list of resources developed for the needs of various students between 2013 and 2018, many of which were previously unpublished. They are free for students and teachers to use in studying music, but come with no guarantee of accuracy.
