As soon as the funds were released to me, I ordered a physical copy of the software and it has arrived! I spent a couple hours today working through its tutorials and am convinced that it was worth every penny. It's intuitive, customizable, and creates truly professional-looking scores.
When I'm done tutorial-ing, I'll start singing at it and get the rough draft hammered out. More updates then!
Thank you thank you THANK YOU.
Because 28 backers gave so generously, and publicized this project so tirelessly on my behalf, we made it under the deadline and this project this project is fully funded!
This means that I will be able to get the tools I need to quickly get this anthem on paper, secure the copyright, and then share it with the world.
I'll be communicating with you again later to get details I need to prepare your rewards. Until then, you can follow the status of this project on my compositions blog.
I can't wait to share it with you!
