It was an honor to be among the works recognized by Frank Ticheli in his 2nd Annual Composition Contest. It opened a door of friendship getting to know Greg Rudgers, who wrote this fine analysis of “Journey to the Prairie”.
In 2012 I completed a research project involving student and director perceptions of an all-county band festival. A summary of the research can be downloaded here.
In 2014 I was able to share an article in Teaching Music (a publication of NAfME) on selecting repertoire for middle school and junior high bands. Click here for the complete article.
For high school ensembles (concert bands or wind ensembles) interested in obtaining an unpublished Grade 4 work entitled “Shine!”, please send me an email or contact me through the website. I will send you a link via Dropbox or Google Drive to a folder containing all the parts and a full score! And the kicker? IT’S FREE. If you end up using the song on your school’s concert program, please contact me and let me know!
