I’m regularly writing for my woodwind sextet, which is the bulk of what’s here for sale. However, I’m doing my best to expand the chamber music repertoire for a variety of ensembles.  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.

If you’re interested in hearing something in particular before committing to a purchase, please email me for a recording.
