This website serves as a way to display my original compositions in the so-called Classical tradition. You can read about each composition by clicking on the “Compositions” menu option, followed by a specific composition. If completed (or excerpted), you can listen there. I’ll keep you up to date with changes and new projects in the blog. There, you’re welcome to leave comments and ask questions. I’d love to hear from you!
I am a former violist and music theorist who wandered off from those disciplines as I gained employment, children, and other interests. Now that children have grown and professional obligations have ended, I am restarting this important part of my life. I returned to academic studies as a Donovan Scholar at the University of Kentucky, in no small part to feed a focus on creating a portfolio of compositions using manuscript software (Avid Sibelius — see “Production technicals” for more). As is true of any composer aimed at ensembles of traditional instruments, my goal is to induce live performances of these works, and, if successful, will post the results here as well. But even if not, all works can be listened to through software-generated videos.
I hope that you gain as much pleasure from listening to these works as I have had in creating them.
All completed recordings are stored on my YouTube Channel for the purpose of embedding those playbacks here. If you wish other formats (including scores/parts), see “Available Materials” above. If you are interested in the technicals of workflow design, including computer hardware and software, click “Production technicals” above.
