Tina has been involved with NoteWorthy Composer since 1998. Like many NoteWorthy Composer users, Tina does not play any musical instrument. As she tells it - "not for lack of trying, I'm just no good at it! Noteworthy Composer allows me to fulfill a musical ambition, which would otherwise fall by the wayside."
She says that she uses NWC "to notate (mainly) large orchestral works from the scores and try to carry out the wishes of the original composer, so far as I can determine what those are. The friendly and helpful NWC users on the newsgroup soon put me right if I make a mess of things."
Having notated all the Beethoven Symphonies she is now working her way through Tchaikovsky's. The NoteWorthy Composer Scriptorium has created The Tina Billett Beethoven Files page to showcase her achievement. You can also check out her work at her site, Keyboard Creations, where she has over 93 *.nwc song files.
In addition to notation, she is working on a beginner's guide to the NWC Multi-point Controller Command. If you take a look at the amazing scores she has notated, you can see she has mastered MPC, as well as the other features of NoteWorthy Composer. Many users learn techniques by looking at her scores.
Tina is a 63 year-old, retired number cruncher, and lives in Surrey, England. She likes most kinds of music, but mainly classical.
