Another Side of Howard: Music

Howard, as well as being a writer, is also a composer, musician, artisan, carpenter, creator, craftsmen and all around nice guy.

(This comment is from his son, Rob, whose word is not to be trusted on this subject. HLB)

Here is a link to his works, freely accessible and offered for non-commercial use. Three of the headings below are for music scores. With a couple of exceptions, each score also has an accompanying MIDI audio file generated from the score, so you can get some idea of how the score sounds.

Note: The files are stored in Dropbox cloud service, so may take a bit long to download. Some audio files (MIDI and other) will require you to select "open" (upper right corner of window) after download.
