•I attended and helped with over 50 beginner classes during the 2018=19 school year! I addition, I worked with a lot of high school and middle school bands. Contact me soon (see email link below) to schedule dates for 2019-2020!
I have spent numerous years teaching band, from grade 5 to graduate students. Although my primary experience has been in band, I have played in and guest conducted numerous orchestras and accept requests to conduct and clinic both bands and orchestras.
I served as Guest Conductor for the Longview Symphony's May 4th concert.
Most of my music is for concert band. I have over 30 pieces published but am offering some new items for sale--contact me for details. I accept requests for commissions (original compositions or arrangements) for any type of ensemble. I enjoy combining a commission with a "meet the composer" experience!
I have been a music educator at several levels for over 40 years. During that time I have created numerous handouts that might be helpful to band teachers.
Do you have questions, want to schedule a clinic, or collaborate on commissioning a new piece? Reach out and I'll answer as soon as I am able.
