Well, for spelling my name right you should be rewarded! Though I have nothing to offer but the gift of music. And, actually, I am trying in most cases to sell that, so it's hardly a gift...anyway...

Come on in and have a look around -
    surely I can't charge you for that!



NEW PIECE: Chileno Bay, for beginning steel ensemble - premiered at the University of Florida (see below!)

FALL 2012

• New steel band publications with Alfred and Bachovich ! Look for Papaya Treat and The Flamingo from Alfred, and visit Bachovich for Socatello !

• Will be playing some pan next fall at PASIC in Austin for the Saturday steel band lit session. Don't know if we'll hear one of the afore-mentioned tunes, but looking forward to it. I'll let you know if one of them gets accepted for the session.

• New chamber composition completed, but because it's submitted anonymously for a competition, I can't tell you about it - check back next month! How's that for a non-news news entry?
