Museum of Music Printing
This online museum will tell you just about everything you always wanted to know (and a whole bunch of stuff you didn't even know you wanted to know) about the technologies of music printing between the Middle Ages and the computer age.
I am active as a composer, a violist, a violinist, a recorder player, a CD reviewer, and as a teacher. I began my professional musical life as a flutist, and spent a lot of quality time as a baroque flutist, but both of those instruments spend their time tucked away in a drawer, while my violin, viola, and my viola d'amore are often tucked under my chin.
