Having worked closely with young string players for the last 40 years, I enjoy writing music for them which is both enjoyable to play and yet technically challenging.
My own family of three string playing boys were the starting point, so it's not surprising that a good number of my pieces reflect things from a child's world. Many pieces were written for particular children - another way to encourage them to discover the joy of playing music together, surely one of God's best gifts to us!
Other Suites for String Orchestra are also available and also pieces for Cello Quartet or Octet, Viola Quartet, Bassoon Quartet and double reed band. I have scored up a few of my String Orchestra pieces for Full Orchestra and also making arranged some of my string orchestra pieces for violin or cello and piano. I have also written various pieces for Piano and Piano Duet, Duets for Clarinet and Flute (or second Clarinet), and a whole range of pieces for choir (SATB), including many Christmas pieces, 3 Negro Spirituals, and a range of hymns and carols.
