4 Reasons Why This Website Exists
1 | CONNECT and COLLABORATE
When you click Let's Connect on the menu above, you'll go to a simple user-friendly widget where you can leave your name and email address, and as much or as little musical info as you like—your account data will go into my private (and I do mean private) database of musical friends and colleagues, allowing me to connect with you whenever I'm involved in a project aligned with your interests. If we can connect, we can collaborate; and I’m interested in developing a lasting creative partnership with you!
2 | PERFORMANCE NOTIFICATION
Have you performed my music in the last year? Whether it was a 3-minute recital piece or a 40-minute concerto, another user-friendly widget, on the Upload A Concert Program page, will allow you to navigate to a file of that recital/concert program on your computer and upload it to my server. That's it—no forms to fill out, no envelopes and stamps. It’s simple, easy, quick—and your 15 seconds with a few routine mouse-clicks will make a crucial contribution to my income as a full-time, self-employed composer after I send your program into ASCAP, all at no cost to you. (And, I will write you a thank-you note.)
3 | PRIVATE TEACHING and RESIDENCY DEVELOPMENT
I will be convening a skype studio for private composition students in 2015—you can read more about it on the Teaching | Residency link and leave me a note if you’re interested in hearing more. If you are teaching in college or university, drop in to read about my residency activities—I’d be happy to brainstorm with you on how a custom-designed and comprehensive residency with me would both serve your school's music program and be a lot of fun for us and your students.
4 | SEARCH MY MUSIC and RECORDINGS
Information on nearly all of my music is found here, and most of it is available for purchase online through Potenza Music Publishing, my exclusive publisher and distributor. There’s an easy search/browse engine at the Compositions link above, where you can focus your search by instrument, ensemble, or voice —and level of difficulty.
Thanks for stopping by, and I do hope you’ll start your exploration of the new JamesGrantMusic.com right now, by clicking on Let’s Connect—I look forward to being in touch with you soon!
