Arranging and Composing

I enjoy writing for big bands, horn sections and small ensembles.  I studied privately with Bob Parini, Bill Zaccagni, Marion Evans and Andy Farber.  I participated in the internationally acclaimed BMI Jazz Composers Workshop from 2018 to 2022.  I’ve written many arrangements for small groups as part of their live shows and recordings.  I’ve also written arrangements and compositions for big bands, some of which have been recorded and are available for purchase.  Writing offers me the opportunity to express my musical ideas at a pace that accommodates attention to detail, and I enjoy the process.  In 2013 I recorded a big band project that consisted of four of my arrangements performed by some of Philadelphia’s finest musicians.  If you would like a copy, email me, and I’ll send you a CD.  A full-length recording of my big band writing was released in 2020 and is available here.
