Full works list

All works are sorted by year, not genre. Click on a title for more information!

Works listed without pricing information are not currently for sale. To inquire about these pieces, fill out the Unavailable Works form at the bottom of this page (this form is also available on the individual pieces’ pages). Please note as of September 2021 all pieces purchased from my website will be delivered electronically unless extreme extenuating circumstances apply. (If that’s you, hit that Contact button in the menu.)

Please note that there is some stylistic overlap in works from Letters from the Aftermath (denoted with an asterisk (*)) and LETTING GO. In most instances, these works are not genre-specific and can be played by ensembles from either background. I have listed them on these pages based on the circumstances of their commissioning and their premieres, but to find the complete lists, visit each of the pages listed above or start from the Projects catchall.

A word on my large ensemble policy: I am fully aware that the circumstances of your ensemble’s instrumentation and/or your judges’ requirements for festival score submissions may require you to print additional copies of the scores and/or parts you purchase from me. That’s totally fine! Every time you buy a PDF from me, you also buy the right to make as many copies as your ensemble needsfor this performance and in the future. If you need written permission to possess and use additional copies of a score, shoot me an email (either with your initial order or before your performance) or use my Contact form. I’ll happily write you one!

Pieces preceded by a triangle of dots (∴) are awaiting their world premieres. I promise they’re lovely, and if you’re looking for something new but don’t have a commission budget, this is your way in.

Unavailable Piece Request
Use this form to get in contact with me about a piece that's either temporarily or permanently unavailable. I do sometimes approve and send out works I've taken off my For Sale page, but be advised: it's a rare thing, partly because getting those pieces ready to go would involved a lot of time and labor that I might need to dedicate elsewhere. Still, if there's something specific you're looking for, tell me about you and your project! Even if I can't make that piece available, I might be able to recommend something else (either of my own or by someone I admire). DO NOT use this form for pieces whose descriptions say "I control where this one goes pretty tightly." Those web pages have their own form! Thank you!
Piece names here, please. You can always reference my full works list if you're not sure.
What I really want to know here: why THIS piece? Some questions that might help you structure your response: are you working with an ensemble at a specific skill level? Is there a particular subject matter you're programming for this project? Do you just really like how the piece sounds?
