This upbeat overture displays the flutes, oboes, and mallets in bell-like sounds contrasting with tutti brass and woodwinds. An optional trumpet solo is one of many features in the flowing lyrical section before the return of the theme and coda.

Festival on the Rivers
Here is an exciting new overture for the young concert band in the conventional A-B-A form. A dance-like main theme is scored in the woodwinds with a bright, driving brass and percussion accompaniment. A short alto saxophone solo highlights the lush B section before returning to the main theme and coda. Excellent for concert and festival.

One Small Step For Man...
This composition depicts the admiration that Americans felt as the American flag was being placed on the moon by astronaut, John Armstrong on July 20, 1969! A great tribute to the advances humans have made since that moment over 35 years ago. This emotional composition opens with a majestic fanfare followed by a slow lyrical section and returns with a powerful closing statement. The 1st clarinets cross the break, and the 1st trumpet's highest note is E with an optional G.

The Sky’s the Limit
An exciting composition that will inspire your students to reach new plateaus! It's great for teaching students syncopation and introducing sixteenth notes. The syncopation is not difficult and the sixteenth notes are only in short diatonic runs for one beat or less. The harmonies are quite interesting, definitely tonal, but not always what you might expect. The 1st clarinets cross the break, and the 1st trumpet's highest note is F. A strong choice for your next concert or festival performance!

Written to depict the witch hunts that took place in the Salem Village of the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1692. With powerful dissonant harmonies and pulsating rhythms, you can almost hear the angry crowds yelling 'guilty' at the witch trials. This strong, forceful composition is sure to stimulate the imaginations of young musicians and capture the attention of your audience!
