Recently I have been added to a list of panelists on the “Who Cares if You Listen” podcast. It is a weekly discussion of composers and different albums by all types of musicians. It is a very diverse group!

Reviews include music from the Baroque period to todays modern hip hop.
Here is a piece I wrote for my favorite small ensemble. Its three movements and runs about 12-13 minutes. The piano part is pretty tricky in spots but nothing should be a problem for the flute and cellist. The music is in a late romantic early 20th c. style, and the third movement has a touch of Prokofiev. I will get a Mp3 sample up soon.

Hi everyone! Its been a while since I have posted and I will change that. Here are all five movements of “Portrait of a Serial Killer.” It is for piano and string quartet. I wrote this piece about 6 years ago. I have delayed posting because of Finale. This is a fun and eerie piece that is approx. 16 minutes in it’s entirety. Movement 3 has a short piano cadenza and Movements 4 and 5 should be played back to back. E-mail me for parts if your interested. (BTW It also makes a great two piano piece.)

Congratulations to the Grant Park Summer singers for their concert. Terri Evans did a wonderful job conducting Invincible City!
Here is Rachmaninoff’s g#minor prelude.

Here is Beethoven’s tenth sonata. This sonata is difficult to find on the internet so I thought I would post it.
Here is the SATB piece with piano accompaniment “Invincible City.” The Text is from the poem by Walt Whitman.
I have written a new piece called “Invincible City” for the Grant Park Choir conducted by Terri Evans. It will be premiered at the beginning of August. It is for SATB with piano accompaniment. You can see their website here for rehearsal info. http://grantparksummersingers.com/ I will post the piece in the next week or so once we get the “kinks” out.
Here is a piece for piano and cello written for a friend of mine after their Birthday. It’s for all of you in your 20′s with no clue what your doing in life. It’s about 3 minutes in length. Very fun to play. This is good practice for you pianists who want some help jumping in the left hand (like a waltz).
Here’s a recent video of me playing some Bach.
Here is an Intermezzo I wrote. It uses pentatonic scales making it sound oriental in some parts. It also uses alot of pedal so it is a good pedal exercise to keep the pedal down while playing the repeated quarters staccato, or a sort of “portato” at the beggining and towards the end. the An excerpt Mp3 is now available…
I recently fixed a few notational errors in the g minor sonata. These were just “syntax” and not any pitch changes. As a Db should have been written a c# in a few places. I am going to upload the 3rd mvmt of this piece soon.
I want to thank everyone for the positive feedback. I love to talk to those of you in different countries. It’s amazing how many people the web can reach when you think about it.
Here is a short Scherzo piece that I wrote. After learning it I realized it is deceivingly difficult.
This piece should be played in the style of a Greig lyric piece or something similar. It’s kind of like an etude if you play it up to tempo. It helps to have big hands (which I don’t) so its pretty challenging. Hope you like it….
