I was impressed by your mother's website. She comes across as a very versatile and talented musician.

 

Do you play the organ? What do you like about the instrument? Do you play in churches yet?

Hi Lee, are you talking about www.organum.org.uk ? If so, glad to hear you like it. It was all hand-coded in a text editor, so there is absolutely no more of it than there has to be, resulting in very quick page loading. No, I don't play the organ properly, though, wherever my mum goes, I will often fiddle around, basically improvising. However, I have forgotten how to read music. I got my Trinity Grade 1 Piano with about 75% marks - a Merit - before my 7th birthday. I then promptly had a blazing row with my mum and gave up. I tried to take the piano up again - at about Grade 3 level - when I was 12 and then my education came crashing down around me. Still, I hope that I can eventually learn to play the piano again and then progress to the organ.

Without wishing to be rude, if you want a hand with website design and coding, drop me a line - whilst the site above is functional, it's not a good advert in that I would expect anyone wishing to market themselves via a website and be taken seriously would make it look a touch more professional. See http://www.stephenfarr.co.uk and http://www.paulspicer.com for examples of what I mean.

 

As I said, I don't wish to be rude (for some reason you seem to have come under attack since joining the forum, I don't know why - I find it rather saddening), so please don't take it as yet another person having a go ; not my intent, this is a serious offer of assistance if you want it. That said, provided your site does what ( and looks how ) you want it to, then that's all that matters.

I agree it isn't all it could be: however, I would argue that, as a functional website, it works just as well, if not better, as the examples you have cited above. I don't like their visual style, which is (in Stepehn Farr's case) avantgarde, corporate and anonymous. I certainly don't like the pop-up windows on Paul Spicer's website.

I like your website just as it is Voix Mystique. I am sure the more you do, the more you will develop your own website building style.

It seems rather a contradiction for a website to be simultaneously "avant garde" and "anonymous".

I assume (in addition) that the use of the word 'anonymous' was intended to refer to the style of the site.

 

Personally, I like Stevie's site - the design is suave, elegant and clear.
