My skills as a composer have been forged in
a variety of circumstances. I have always written original music with
the intention of performing it myself, through multi-tracking or in
groups. The desire to improve myself in this arena led to my Composition
degree from Berklee College of Music in Boston. I have worked
professionally with several lyric composers who needed to have harmony
added to their melodies, and parts written for copyright purposes. For
five years, my company Musical Coordination Services
prepared demos of these compositions utilizing sequencing and analogue
recording at Euphoria Sound Studios.
I am the principle composer for Cat's
A Bear, and wrote or co-wrote several of the songs on the first One
World Tribe album, Unity and Diversity, including
the award-winning title track. I am also the recipient of the Richard
Levy Award for Composition for the chamber septet Like A
Trip To California. In 1995, I was commissioned by Gannon
University to write a string quartet for the Erie Bicentennial.
The result was Generations, for two violins, violin cello,
and electric jazz guitar.
I have scored music for video presentations,
and for dance classes. I have written classical guitar works, orchestral
music, string quartets, solo guitar works, big band scores, jazz heads,
funk, reggae, latin and salsa, hiphop, rock, jazz fusion, and many other
styles. More and more of these compositions will become available on
this website for performance and recording.
