Arrangements and development of traditional music (mostly from Ireland or Scotland)
After completing a full time carreer teaching adults an students in English, I offer you my scores through Free-scores.com in order to let you share my passion for amateur music.
Still benefiting from the sponsorship of our former Institut Stéphanois d'Anglais, I am now leading a group of 15 motivated amateur recorder players after ten years of benevolent musical workshop, and we occasionally take part in public events together with the Conservatoire Jules Massenet in Saint-Etienne, thanks to their wonderful artist and recorder teacher, Gwenaël BIHAN
My music is the result of a self teaching experience and its style is mostly classical and baroque. The instruments I write for are mostly baroque recorders (descant, trebble, tenor and bass), as well as the classical guitar. But you might as well enjoy these melodies with any other relevant instrument, of course.
All my music scores are legally protected under the name of Mélodithèque, but I am very happy to offer you this music here and allow you to play with private friends or in consort, including for free or paying concerts with public audience. However, please remember that any professional use and selling of this music, whether on paper or recorded supports or through any professionnal artistic achievement, requires my personal written agreement.
Last but not least, I would indeed appreciate hearing or reading from you to know how you like this music of my own, and I do hope new friends will contact me and (easily) perform my musical inspiration far better than I do.
NB: The various Mélodithèque books are not classified according to difficulties of interpretation, but simply in chronological order. Besides, given my writing approach (contrechant or counterpoint), playing only two tracks of a trio, or two or three tracks of a quartet can prove equally enjoyable. Lastly, my lack of musical edudation may explain occasional "mistakes" regarding classical writing rules, but after all, early musicians and composers enjoyed this kind of freedom before such rules were officially adopted !
