Robert Puff, notation guru, software wiz, and the creator of the Of Note blog, passed away last week after a battle with mantle cell lymphoma.
Philip Rothman over at Scoring Notes wrote a lovely tribute to Robert and his distinguished career as an innovative expert in music preparation, which you can read here.
Robert was a colleague, a mentor, and a friend. He will be dearly missed.
It is my intention to keep publishing articles to Of Note, which has been an invaluable resource to me and countless others over the years interested in taking deep dives into notation software. Work will also continue on the JetStream Finale Controller, which was created through Robert’s continual search for better tools.
If you are so moved, you could direct a charitable donation in Robert’s honor to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
