Who I am, What I’ve Done, and the Services I Offer
This website has information on my various activities. I am a:
- Editor (Music as well as text)
- Writer (Articles on music of all types, motion pictures, television, and recordings)
I invite you to explore, discover and ask questions. I would love to create music for you, assist you in writing a Teacher Guide or Textbook, conduct your ensemble, work with students (I have New Jersey certifications in K-5 Classroom, Music, and Library/Media, and have taught courses in colleges on the Bachelors and Masters levels, as well as trade schools), write an article for your publication, and edit your music.
World-famous clarinetist and friend Ken Peplowski will be premiering my Clarinet Concerto later this year. Details will be forthcoming when they can be made public.
Thanks to all of you who attended my presentation on Bird with Ensembles at the Jazz Education Network on January 8th, 2020 in New Orleans. A video of the presentation will be posted soon.
I am proud to announce that I have returned to the faculty of Five Towns College, where I will be preparing presentations and curricula on Dave Brubeck and Les Paul.
Les Rose is the latest educator who has commissioned music from me for his jazz ensemble, to be performed in March and April of this year. Are you next?????
