Three milestones achieved...
#1
Here they are:
1) My site https://www.de-bra.nl/arrangements.html now lists 100 (free!) arrangements for accordion ensemble.
2) I just completed my second CD. The two CDs are: https://www.de-bra.nl/Professor-P-cd.html and https://www.de-bra.nl/Professor-P-cd2.html (and the pages not only contain links to all the tracks but also to an iso file to burn a cd). Together the CDs illustrate what 32 out of the 100 arrangements may sound like.
3) My arrangements have reached 35.000 (real) downloads.
I'm happily continuing writing and playing for the pure benefit of our wonderful instrument!

Congratulations Paul, quite an achievement. I’ve always enjoyed browsing your site from time to time but didn’t realise you had 100 arrangements. How do you get the time and energy to manage it all?

What a fine selection of accordion ensemble arrangements, my congratulations with your arrangements and recordings for the accordion.
I imagine, learning from the impressive number of downloads, a boost if your arrangements are being played by accordion ensembles and used in music schools.

Paul, a lot of work is represented in that site, congrats on achieving your milestones. The thing that I respect the most is that you are giving it all away for free. This is something that I also recognize in myself when I do video educational series. I find it a fantastic way of giving back to the community.

Well done. Smile

Respect.
