Welcome to my blog
I have created this site in order to provide performers, listeners and composers with a description of a composer's experiences with the creative process. The posts will provide discussions of the inspirations, challenges, and successes of a composer from the inception of the piece to the culmination in performance. I will provide a link to where you can see and hear the works in progress. Comments and questions are always welcomed. They will not posted unless you grant me permission.

My Spring Tour
I just returned from a tour to San Marcos Texas for the premiere of my Modern Jazz Suite for Alto Saxophone and Guitar by Texas State University professors, Todd Oxford and Mark Cruz. Todd also performed my Four Spanish Dances for Alto Saxophone and Marimba with Bobby Lopez. While at Texas State, I gave a lecture on Aesthetics of Music. Other activities during the tour was a rehearsal with the Rio Rico High School Band in Rio Rico, AZ who will be premiering my Bandscapes on May 2 and three presentations on Mariachi Music at retirement communities along my route. It was a fun and musically rewarding trip.
