Welcome to my music page. It includes samples of my own compositions and those by other Vietnamese musicians, written or arranged for classical guitar, piano and/or orchestras. There are also English verses (singable) for Viet melodies, as well as English translations (non-singable) of Vietnamese songs which can serve as an introduction for non-Viet speakers.

What do you need

...to listen to MIDI files

Best effect is obtained by using an external sound module (synthesizer). Older computers have SB16 sound cards: these are NOT suitable for orchestral pieces, only for piano or guitar solos. Many will have AWE32 or AWE64 cards: you can hear orchestral music with these but the quality is poor and there is a lot of background noise. For best effect you should connect the "line out" outlet from the soundcard to the amplifier in your stereo set. An inexpensive way to improve the quality of sound from soundcards is to use a software synthesizer such as Wingroove   

...to listen to RealAudio files

you need to download the free Real Player. 

...to listen to MP3 files (Near-CD quality)

you need to download RealJukebox (free). 

...to sing along using "nwc" files

Download the free Noteworthy Player. You wil be able to see the notes and lyrics and hear the music at the same time, as in Karaoke. 

...for song, piano and guitar scores 

To read the scores in Acrobat (PDF) form you need the free software Acrobat Reader
