Website update

Website update

I’ve made some major changes to the website in the past two months. Visit JamesGilbertMusic.com to see all the changes.

More free music

In the process of getting rid of collections (see below), I decided to move several titles to the free category (listed at the bottom of the music catalog pages). As an example, all of the instrumental hymn improvisations are now available for free.

Singles – no collections

Most print publishers sell music in collections. Multiple titles contained within one book. Overall it is cheaper per piece for the customer. But, in my experience, the collection contains to many titles I didn’t want to buy but were forced to. When I first started the website, I only sold music as single titles. A little over a year ago (I think) I switched to collections for most everything. Thanks to your feedback, I’ve learned that online customers just want to purchase a single title.

Almost everything on the site is now available as a single title. What collections there are will disappear soon to be replaced by singles.

Albums, singles, EP and audio recordings in general

I’ve been an active contributor to SoundCloud and have announced my uploads via Twitter, this blog, facebook and the like. However, on the website, all I had was a link to my SoundCloud page. Also, I have several singles and now 2 EPs (only) on GooglePlay. Those are mentioned on the website’s main page, but nowhere else. I’ve updated the sheet music catalog to include those in the listings with links to the two sites. For most of 2014 my recordings have only been available via online sources other than my website. For various reasons that is best for me and will continue to be that way. Those include CD-Baby, Amazon, GooglePlay and Spotify as well as various online streaming sites.

New titles

I’ve added several new titles to the sheet music catalog. Click on the New Titles icon to see all of them.

Better Icons

At least I hope they are better. I updated the graphics on the music catalog page to make it easier to read. I also added and updated a few on the main page.

New Videos

I’ve posted several new videos on YouTube. You can view all of them  at My YouTube Channel

Here’s a look at a few of them.

First, another music video with fractal art I created. I have some rendered 3-d artwork and fractal images. The background music is a new piece “How Perfect Love Is” from our website (http://jamesgilbertmusic.com).

The next one I’ll feature here is one of several similar videos that illustrates the various sheet music offerings available at the website. This one features Handbell and Handchime music. It shows samples from the website along with sample recordings.

In addition to the Handbell video, there are videos featuring our Orchestra & Instrumental Ensemble titles; Choral titles and Brass selections. I plan to add more videos with our other categories.
