I have been a composer since 10th grade, having my works performed by the band and brass ensemble at the high school I went to, the Charlotte Valley Central School, Davenport, New York, where I studied composition with Roland Tuttle. I studied composition and trombone at the State University of New York at Oneonta, with Carleton Clay, and at the University of Michigan, with William Bolcom, William Albright, Leslie Bassett and James Dapogny. I went on to be a professional trombone player and artist. I performed with the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra for 37 years, The Pontiac/Oakland symphony for 20 years as well as numerous other orchestras in the area. I was leader of the brass quintet from the orchestra for 20 years and since then, formed my own brass quintet, the Ann Arbor Brass. Over the past 20 years, I have composed several works ranging from piano to brass quintet to concert band. I hope you will enjoy listening to my compositions.
