I am constantly at work on writing music, either a commission from a person or school, or just working on new ideas of my own. Contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a commission!
Even during COVID, I have been fortunate to be in a lot of schools, helping with everything from beginner band through presentations for university classes/ensembles.
I am also available to do faculty developments for band staffs.
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, 2019.
Get on my calendar now!
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.
