Welcome! Kick off your shoes, lean back, and enjoy some of my Original Compositions in Midi, MP3, and Sheet Music formats. Many of the scores are offered in Scorch format, and are mostly free. You will find a lot of music for piano, flute, clarinet, saxophone, and trombone, as well as for vocal groups, and larger instrument ensembles and orchestras.
Another recent piece is Chromatic Aberrations. It is a slow, romantic-style piece for oboe and piano. You can listen to an MP3 recording of a beautiful performance by Alison Lowell and Amy Rothstein, and print out the sheet music.
Another recent piece is Thank You for Not Laughing. I wrote it specially for the InterPlay Company at Strathmore, a band for people with and without cognitive disabilities: Golden Eagle, Warm Night is a slow, tranquil piece in a Native American style, for piano, clarinet, flute, and timpani. Cowboys Will be Cowboys is a simple, tranquil piece for an ensemble of instruments. Bon Rien is Cajun slang, meaning "a good-for-nothing guy." This song is composed in a Cajun style, meaning it's fast, upbeat and staccato, and consists mostly of 2 chords. The score has parts for: Flute, Accordion, Guitar, Banjo, Bass, Alto Saxophone, Clarinet, Oboe, Percussion, Piano, Timpani, Trumpet in Bb, Violin, and Cello. You certainly do not need all these instruments to perform the song; The bare necessity is accordion, violin, bass (or piano) and drums. Lots of fun! You can listen to a synthesized MP3 recording, and, you can view/listen/print the score and parts in sheet music format.
Another recent piece is Tale of Three Deities. Barbara Kupferberg wrote the wonderful lyrics, and I wrote the music for soprano, piano, clarinet and flute. Listen to this marvelous performance by Harlie Sponaugle, soprano; Amy Rothstein, piano; Michael Bowyer, flute; Nancy Genovese, clarinet. Also, you can read the lyrics and download the scores.
new soundtrack! Here is the trailer
to the documentary film, Mosby's Combat Operations
in Fairfax County, Virginia. Six local historians
(Eric Buckland, Tom Evans, Don Hakenson, Chuck Mauro,
Stevan Meserve and Mayo Stuntz) take you to locations in
Fairfax County, where they document the vivid history of
Mosby's Raiders. John Singleton Mosby, a colonel in the
Confederate Army during the Civil War, was known as "the
Gray Ghost". He was the father of modern guerilla
warfare, and perhaps the single most successful guerilla
fighter in American history. The documentary premiered
at the Cinema
Arts Theater in Fairfax, Virginia. Listen to a few
of the tracks:
Another recent piece is Gimme Five, for piano and oboe. The piece is of course, in 5/4 time; the title is a play on the title of Dave Brubeck's famous piece Take Five. Listen to the beautiful performance in MP3 recorded format by Kristy Johnson and Susan Alexander. Here are the scores for oboe and piano, in PDF format.
recent piece is Southwest Splendor, a
soundtrack to a video that I co-produced with Paul
Silverman. Listen to the MP3,

you a musician? Would you like to perform a new
composition, one written expressly for you or your
me! It is a wonderful experience to play a
brand new piece, one that is just the right duration
and skill level for your performance.
