Flute – Ivory Desert
This flute solo offers everything the advanced flutist could want: aggressive passages, sweeping gestures, expressive grace notes, and flutter tonguing.
Flute – Consider the Lilies
Writing this unaccompanied flute solo was the first opportunity I’ve ever had to write something that needed to be played by someone new to an instrument.
Saxophone – Vagrant Contemplation
This saxophone solo very much sticks to traditional capabilities. I would highly recommend this to students who are learning to play out of time.
Saxophone – What Wondrous Love Is This?
My arrangement of “What Wondrous Love Is This?” for solo saxophone opens with an unembellished statement of the melody and quickly develops from there.
Saxophone – What Child is This? (Greensleeves)
This arrangement for solo saxophone is titled “What Child is This?” instead of “Greensleeves” because I had the text of the hymn in mind when writing.
Saxophone – All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name
A fairly simple arrangement of “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name.” It is intended to for solo saxophone, but this should not deter other instrumentalists.
Alto Saxophone – Psalm 51
This alto saxophone solo is a musical depiction of Psalm 51; a biblical text describing David’s sorrow over his sin.
Timpani and Piano – Application
In this timpani and piano duet the timpani player needs to play quickly and quietly, change tunings while playing, and listen very carefully to this piano.
Wedding Processional Music – The First Song
“The First Song”, for solo piano, is wedding processional music designed to describe the joy in a man’s heart as his bride walks down the aisle.
Wedding Prelude Music – Oath of Unity
I wrote this wedding music for piano with an accomplished pianist in mind and set out to create a classical piece broadly usable for wedding preludes.
Saxophone Duet – O Come, O Come Emmanuel
This arrangement of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” was written for my saxophone playing friend and me to play are our church’s christmas eve service in 2012.
Saxophone and Clarinet Duet – Essence Altered
I originally wrote this saxophone and clarinet duet for Liz and I to play at our wedding. It is, however, well suited for just about any occasion.
Violin and Clarinet Duet – Proclamation
This violin and clarinet duet, while being fairly simple, has a depth to it that nearly every level of performer or listener will get something out of.
Bass Clarinet and Marimba Duet – Underneath the Spreading Tree
This bass clarinet and marimba duet is full of wonderfully rich sounds and textures that you can not produce with any other combination of instruments.
Piano, Violin, and Cello Trio – Discovery
This trio for piano, violin, and cello depicts the process that a child goes through when they “discover” something that they are really not supposed to.
Woodwind Quintet – Song of Creation
This woodwind quintet started as an experiment on what five voices could do. As the motives developed, the sound seemed to grow like an ecosystem.
Wind Ensemble – Four Seasons and a Day in Grand Ledge
In memory of Marilyn Smith, the mother of Grand Ledge. This was written for the Grand Ledge Community Band and reflects the capabilities and unpredictable instrumentation of a community band.
Wind Ensemble – Shekinah
This wind ensemble composition can be extremely challenging. The wide spacing of perfect intervals at exposed moments demands an acute sense of intonation.
Wind Ensemble – Stifled Mystery
Stifled Mystery was written in collaboration with a wind ensemble director and educator. It is designed to be a lengthy work for high school wind ensemble.
Alto Saxophone Concerto for Wind Band – Transition
This alto saxophone concerto features an extremely difficult solo part utilizing the instrument’s countless timbres, agility, and altissimo register.
