Composition is my primary musical activity and one which I received the most training in over the years. I compose music regularly for my own groups and have had works commissioned by several ensembles. I am knowledgeable in all areas of "classical" composition technique in multiple periods (Baroque, Romantic, Twentieth Century, etc.) as well as many jazz idioms (bebop, modal, modern, free jazz, etc.).
