One advantage in reaching the ripe old age of seventy + (Yeah. I was born 1936) is having lived through some of the most exciting musical moments of the twentieth century.
It was on my doctor's advice when I turned 60, to slow down and find myself a nice quiet relaxing hobby or have a heart attack. So I took up writing for the musical stage. Who said this was a relaxing hobby?
As to the kind of music I write I don't have a particular category, as my writing covers a very wide spectrum. To date I have completed several musical plays as well as writing various choral pieces and solo songs. Guess I must be in a hurry! Can't think why, I'm not that old!
