      Thank you, James! We can all have some fun and learn about the creative process. I deeply enjoy the spirituality aspects of creative musicians. It often takes great courage to reveal yourself through Music. Thanks again, James!

    My dad was an opera singer and a music professor – I was bathed in music as a kid and still enjoy all sorts of music. I feel music as the expression of our souls on a much more primal level than speech. Happy to see you pouring out your passion in this way! tomas ☼

    Hi. Duane Peck. My name is Sujin Lee from S.Korea. I found your blog on the researching on google. I am studying composition at university. Thanks for your various resources. I’m very impressed by your blog. Thanks.

    • createmusic said, on December 17, 2013 at 6:45 am

      Thank You, Sujin Lee!

      Learning music can be fun. Music Composition takes that learning to much higher levels. On a University level, you learn and explore from the very best. Believe in your Dream. Feel the Music deep in your Heart. I wish you the very best!

    hi Duane,
    thank you for following my blog, Blue*Star*Lady*, it’s interesting as I am a musician/composer as well,
    piano, flute, harp, sax and though I am a Californian, at the moment on Cape Cod with my mom (selling the house here) listening to Ray Smith’s Jazz Decades at this particular node of space/time, fun synchronicity

    I came to thank you for the reblog, and stayed for the music how-to posts! I work with words, not notes, but the similarities between the two processes are eerie! Nice to meet you. 🙂

  20. mrpaul said, on January 2, 2015 at 11:12 am

    so happy 2 find your wonderful music blog after discovering that one of my works was just re-blogged – thanks so very much Duane ! – so beautiful to experience your generosity of spirit

  21. downbythebrook said, on February 2, 2015 at 12:59 am

    Great blog Duane. Thanks for visiting my blog all the times you have and re blogging some of my posts.

  22. Mark Fabio said, on March 8, 2015 at 5:21 pm

    This is a great blog site! I have a question for you. I am designing an online graduate level course to help teachers use Digital Audio Workstations in their classrooms to teach composition. I want to use Bolero by M. Ravel as a musical example for one of the projects and I am having trouble getting permission/license to use it. I wanted to use the London Symphony/Gergiev recording and I found a great video on Youtube. Further search brought me to your blog and I was wondering if you knew who or where I would get that kind of permission.
    Any help would be grateful!

  23. Julia Lund said, on March 24, 2015 at 6:16 pm

    Thank you for the reblog. I feel honoured to appear amongst such musical talent, something I longed to have but am very blessed to appreciate in those who have it.

    Hi Duane, Its Vish from the Ugly Bass Face blog.

    I’m starting a group on Facebook dedicated to bass & music theory blogs and wanted to invite you to join. You can post links to your blog (especially to individual entries, even historical ones) on it to both generate traffic to your site and to share information with the world-at-large (at least as it exists on FB).

    If you’re interested in joining it, its a public group. You can find it by searching for “Bass blogs” on Facebook or by using this link:


    I’ll begin advertising it in the next few days, after I’ve invited more bass & music bloggers to join it.

    Take care!
