True Harmony


Julie Smallwood

Welcome to my music composition site 'True harmony', which comprises of piano solo pieces and flute/piano pieces.   I am an experienced piano and clarinet teacher, having taught for over twenty years now and throughout these years I have always had a great interest and passion for composing piano solo pieces.  I have been married to my husband for twenty one years this year and we have three children aged between 17 - 20.   I enjoy painting, particularly scenery from places we have visited and I have done murals on a larger scale on walls.   I enjoy walking, gardening and also watching films, particularly action/adventure and fantasy films.   Each year I put on a concert for all my pupils at church to allow them to gain experience in performing in front of an audience and they also play their other instruments which many learn at school.  This is an enjoyable occasion and allows their parents to watch and listen and see their child's improvement as they progress each year.   The music of film composers such as John Williams (Star wars/ Indiana Jones), James Horner (Braveheart) and Alan Silvestri (Forrest Gump) have always been a big influence to me in writing music as they show such diversity and a great passion in their music.   My compositions are generally of a lyrical nature often with a story behind them and I hope people will enjoy learning them and performing them and get some inspiration from them.
