"Professional Quality Scores Produced for You"
I have recently re-evaluated my musical career and decided that it is time to take it "to the next level". Whilst I am enjoying my musical direction and teaching duties, my composition focus has slipped considerably over the last few years. With that in mind, I went back over the music I have written since 2000 withdrew a large number of scores, leaving me with just those I feel most proud of, or have received good feedback on. I have also reordered my opus numbers to just those scores that I feel are worthy of such a designation.
I fully intend to now continue writing new music and would love to be able to do it full time, though that is likely a long way off yet. All of my scores are available for purchase at Score Exchange and, going forward, certain scores will also be made available through Sheet Music Plus.
For anything new, I am also now in a position to create high quality recordings of many pieces, all of which will be made available through Bandcamp, where you can listen to them before you buy. Some are also available on Soundcloud, where you can listen to them as much as you like, though obviously a purchase of a track would be of great assistance to me!
My catalogue of compositions can be found here, and contains many pieces that I feel are particularly worthy of investigation by the general public, together with links to scores and performances to listen to. Any comments you may have, I would be only too happy to receive them. My aim is to improve as a composer and share my musical ideas with as many people as possible.
