It makes a cute present for Baby showers and birthday presents for toddlers. All tracks can be listened to online. (See links below) The CD is a 'keeper' and features artwork buy Sian Rance.

Amadeus Nursery is available as a sheet music book in Piano/vocal score, as performed on the audio CD.

The Future of Music Publishing

Once the domain of engravers and inverse copper plate with ink and paper guillotines galore, the advances in publising technology that routed type-setters in the 1980's has left Music Publishing in a strange place. Record deals that were so lucrative for a 'Band' are no longer doled out like Polo-mints after a Curry night out with the A & R man. CD duplication and now High quality 0.01 cents per click Streaming have put paid top that gravy train. Publishing deals for contemporary composers were already a huge risk investment for publishers. How then to monetise a compostion that might only attract a few hundred sales if that? What hope then for the aspiring composer? Moreover, why would anyone wish to listen to your music unless you had invested heaviliy with an unshakeable self-belief, a mission to be heard and performed. There is alway a niche market for some kinds or work or recordings you just have to 'keep at it' so they say.

My own 'catalogue' of works spans 40 years now and I have no idea how that much time has dashed by so quickly, nor how it happens that I don't have a complete publish-ready set of copies of my music works to sell online. Let's just say it's a work in progress, using as much care over proof-reading and type-setting music engraving that might have been someone else's full time job less than 50 years ago.
