About the music
Although most of my educational band and orchestra music is published by other companies, this website was created as a way to offer my other types of works, mainly trumpet and chamber music.
All of the music that I produce is printed with archival pigment inks on acid-free papers. This ensures an extra long shelf life. All of the editions are printed in a 9"x12" format and are spine stapled. The covers that protect the music are full 4 color semi-aqueous coated paper. Additionaly, each edition is hand signed and numbered. Click on titles below to see sample scores and to purchase.
