•I have attended and helped with over 40 beginner classes this Fall! I addition, I am working with a lot of middle schools this Fall.
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.
Most of my music is for concert band. I have over 30 pieces published but will be offering some new items on this web site. I accept requests for commissions 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.
