Fan Mail

I love receiving and responding to fan mail and since putting up my first cover in July 2012, have received many which i have treasured and have been much encouraged by them. I thank you all so very much for your praise, appreciation, suggestions, requests and support.

I thought it would be nice to share some of my favourite emails and comments here on the website. Of course I’ll keep all names anonymous, unless I’m given specific permission to reveal them. If you see your comment here and would rather it remain between the two of us, please let me know… I would totally understand and remove it without hesitation ok?

Please feel free to comment…and add to my favourite fanmail hehe! Oh yea…when you comment, do put something in the name box, otherwise wordpress treats it as spam :-p Thanks for reading my stuff 🙂

  1. Are you sure you’re the one who originally arranged the music sheet of you are the reason? Coz i saw the same music sheet from another website offered for free

      1. Thanks for letting me know. It’s the other person who has done so. I’m very upset about that, so please send me the link to that website so that I can confront that person who did it.

      2. I guess you did copy the sheet and claimed it yours huh. You reply fast when the comment is positive but when it’s negative you ignore it.

      3. And you make judgements when you haven’t got all the proof. Look at all my covers and arrangements on YouTube. I’m a professional, and a teacher. I’m fully qualified to make sheet music on my own. I have no need to copy other people’s work, and I have never done so. You should start accusing that other person instead. And give me that link! BTW, I didn’t reply quickly because I don’t have notifications on for WordPress. The app is hopeless, so I’ve uninstalled it from my phone.

      4. Anonymous, I think you are the one from the other website claiming it’s your work and trying to reverse the blame onto dear Joyce. You’re despicable.

      5. This Anonymous is nasty! Making accusation just because some website is offering it free. It’s most like the other way round, copying Joyce’s work and making it free. And this person is making the accusation to pre-empt his action.

      6. Yes, I’ve seen my arrangements on other websites as well as the Musescore community. I wrote to Musescore about it and they removed those sheets that I identified, but lately, I saw another one there. I decided not to make a fuss about that because I know not everyone can afford to buy the sheets, and I wish I could still help them. The other website though, put their name as arranger! I wrote to them asking them to remove the sheets, but they never did reply nor remove them. I also have seen my sheets on Scribd – without my permission or credit. But again, I won’t be asking them to remove it…. I guess that happens when one creates music which is quite popular haha 😊.

    1. Please tell me what website that is. The sheets are really mine. All my covers have original sheets by me. I used to give them out free, until the publishers/record companies came after me for copyright. That’s why I had to partner with musicnotes.com to license my arrangements and sell them legally. Whoever posted my sheets on that website, have actually done so illegally, and without my permission. I’m very upset about that. So please send me the link.

  2. Hi Joyce! I am one of your big fans. You have inspired me to keep on playing piano with your arrangements. I have downloaded your free music scores before and I am still downloading the pieces even I have to purchase them. Whenever I finish a piece, it gives me a feeling of accomplishment. I am a mother of four and I play piano at home as a hobby. It makes my children happy whenever they hear me playing a movie theme song.
    I would like to make a request if you could please arrange the theme song for the Endgame movie. Thank you very much and more power.

    1. Thank you so much for your support through the years, Elaine! I’m delighted to know how much you and your children like my arrangements! I’ll try my best to do the Endgame theme.

  3. I feel bad that your music sheets are now priced. I have downloaded many of your sheets before but now I can’t because it is now in musicnotes and all in there are paid. I used to adore your sheets because the transcription of songs doesn’t go far from the original melodies. May I request that the old music sheets of yours be free because my phone has been corrupted and the free sheets I have downloaded are gone.😭 Please just make the old sheets free☹️ those sheets that you made before you’ve partnered with musicnotes. Thank you

    1. I only partnered with musicnotes because the music producers came after me, saying they’d take legal action if I didn’t stop distributing the sheets without licensing fee 😞. And now, according to my contract with musicnotes, I’m not allowed to distribute (sell or give away) anything that I arrange – they have exclusive rights.
      There has been no mention of midi files, though. So if you email me at joycemusic1@gmail.com, with a list of midi files that you’d like, I’ll send them to you. Would that be ok?

      1. I understand☺️ Sorry for the late reply. I just want the old free sheets back because my phone got corrupted and those I have downloaded are gone☹️ It’s ok with me even though your new sheets are priced since you’ve partnered with musicnotes. I only wish that the sheets before you partnered with musicnotes be free but if you’re sending midi in my email I’d be grateful with that☺️ oh and by the way I like your transcription of if i ain’t got nothing it’s just that I wouldnt be able to download the pdf for free anymore but it’s ok I will just watch your synthesia☺️ your transcriptions are brilliant miss Joyce keep up the good work☺️

  5. Hi Joyce,
    I am a 15 year old girl who has epilepsy. Everyday after school i will listen to your covers and cry tears of happiness.My favourite cover of yours is Fight Song. That song helps me to believe in myself and remind me that i don’t have to suffer my epilepsy alone. When i watch your covers, you play with so much confidence.You should be very proud of yourself.

    I send you all my love and support!!!
