I have not written here for two weeks, and it has been a busy two weeks. I just want to give you a few updates today. Also, we have a ton of new subscribers and I want to catch those people up with things that are available on the site.
2017 Arranging Contest
The winner of the contest was supposed to be announced around Thanksgiving and we are on schedule for that. Watch for the announcement of the contest winner right here the day before Thanksgiving.
Win a free signed copy of Christmas Improvisations
I am grateful for those of you that have purchased a copy of this book either here on the site or other distributors. I am also honored that the largest Christian music distributor in the world (J.W. Pepper) selected this book as an Editor’s Choice. If you want a chance to win a signed copy, go to my Facebook page and just post a comment under the “Silent Night” video. You have to enter by Monday midnight EST.
Remember that if you order the book here at GregHowlett.com, you get the download of the album for free.
At the end of October, I recorded five big songs that will be released as single videos over the next few months. I expect the first to drop around Thanksgiving. I will be interested in your thoughts. It is a very upbeat Celtic arrangement featuring the classic hymn “All Creatures of Our God and King.”
Blogging for the rest of the year
I am planning on taking it very easy the rest of the year. To put it mildly, I have been working hard this year and it is time for a break. I will be here probably once a week but some of those will be reposts of previous lessons and quick news updates.
Christmas video playlist
If you listen to Christmas music, all of my music (two full albums) is available on YouTube for free with this playlist.
I hope you have a restful and wonderful holiday season. I plan to play a lot of golf and read a lot.
