    Oh, duh. Sorry.

    I want to have links that stream my compositions. There would be a link that said "compositions" and once that was selected a window would open with things like:

    "Music For Cello Solo"

    "String Quartet"

    Clicking on the title would bring a new window where the piece would play. Quicktime I guess.

    BTW, I know how to upload all the .mp3 files to the server but that's about it.

    HTML:
    <a href="www.jeromeperry.com/song1.mp3">Click Here to listen to Song 1</a>
    <a href="www.jeromeperry.com/song2.mp3">Click Here to listen to Song 2</a>
    <a href="www.jeromeperry.com/song3.mp3">Click Here to listen to Song 3</a>
    
    this should be plenty sufficient then. :)

    Ooooooooooooooook.

    So, I am 5 days into learning to build a website from having zero experience and I said screw making a webpage in MS word and I just learned scripting in HTML.

    I created a totally new page so see what you guys think of it. It's still really simple but it does what I want. I just can't figure out how to add a backround image to any pf my pages yet.

    See if you see any improvment and feel free to give me some suggestions:

    You might want to read some articles on CSS.
    It's a fairly painless process, and the results are well worth the effort.

    Fix the font on the Composition pages, it is ridiculously large.

    I really like your compositions ('12' in particular).

    I've recently been checking out stuff by Oval, Nobukazu Takemura, etc. Oval in particular is very 'non-musical'. ;)

    I think the minimalist composition of your web site is good for your music. ou probably didn't intend it that way since you just started, but at the very least I think it won't be necessary to cram the site with fancy graphics and such.

    Someone suggested looking into CSS, that's a good idea. It will allow you to basically designate a style for your site, then be able to make changes to it later and have all your pages more or less automatically update (rather than going through each individual page and changing the formatting.) In the long run, it lets you focus on content more than formatting.
