About Us

Music with Meaning is a software program that combines a classical MIDI file with running text. What this means is that as you listen to the music, you can read about what you are listening to, at exactly the point it's happening.

  • Want to know more about the composer? - it'll tell you. 
  • What's the background to the piece? - it'll tell you. 
  • What instrument was playing that solo line? - it'll tell you. 
  • What's the structure of the piece? - it'll tell you.

And if you're new to listening and looking at music this way, there's an easy version for you to read, without musical jargon; but if you feel you'd like to read about the music in more depth, there's a more detailed version. Each piece of music comes with both versions, so you don't have to choose before you buy.

You'll get more out of listening to music as a result of using Music with Meaning. It's interesting, and fun - and by way of good measure, it's educational, too. If you are interested just download the latest version of Music with Meaning, Music with meaning comes "zipped-up" within a readme file, if you do not have a copy of PKUNZIP or WinZip then you may wish to down load just the self installing executable file called MwM.exe and the readme file separately.  Our site does become slow due to the demand for Music with Meaning; you may prefer to source an alternative site to download Music with Meaning.

Our classical MIDI files would be nothing without the composer's original scores. These backroom boys, working long hours losing sleep and in some cases whole families, have put together a composer's page containing some information about themselves.
