Share and enjoy

Apart from these advantages for you as an individual you may enjoy it with other musicians. Musicians that you already know and play with or musicians you do not yet know!

  • You’ll be able to play the tune together with others without ever having rehearsed!
  • Perfect to prepare for any gathering like a a meeting in the park, under the bridge, a flashmob, demonstration or festival as soon as Corona measures allow this

This is the perfect material for spontaneous music meetings. All that you need to do is pick some nice tunes, download the parts of them and practice them at home individually. Then join with your friends and play them right away!

Corona Suite as a gift to others

You might know people that you like to surprise with a musical gift. This is a very unusual one and at the same time unique!

Let your friend(s) enjoy the suite by sending me an email telling me which instrument your friend plays and what e-mail address the files can be sent to, and if you wish add a personal note for your friend.

Live and let live

Of course it is possible to multiply your own obtained files, but please keep in mind that this is my creative answer to Corona. All my other work stopped and this is what I currently make a living of.

What will be next?

No need to stop after the Corona Suite!

After these five pieces I will invite interesting Composers and bands to share their material at this place. Local bands, known bands, upcoming bands. It will be a meeting place for both amator and professional musicians to exchange songs and ideas and get inspiration from each others playing.
