On this page you will find some of the work that I’ve put in over recent years in expanding the chamber music repertoire while writing for specific musicians. Everything you’ll find here has been performed in some capacity to include the Clarinet Academy of the South, All-State Solo and Ensembles, the International Clarinet Association convention, Army Field Band Concert Band tours and chamber recitals, and more.

Contact me if you have something in particular that you’d like to commission or see make it to this page. Though most of the music on this page is woodwind based, I am happy to write for any instrumentation.

I’m currently working on adding audio samples for all arrangements.  If you’re interested in something in particular that isn’t uploaded yet, please email me for a recording!
