Hello everyone, Thank you for visiting my homepage. A little background: I went to high school in Anchorage, Alaska, then attended college at the University of the Pacific, in Stockton, Ca, as a music education major. I taught middle school for four years, then went back to school to work on a master's degree. During graduate school, I had the good fortune to study with a wonderful composition professer, Stanworth Beckler. He encouraged me to compose, and I received my MM in composition from UOP in 1971. I taught middle school band and orchestra in Bakersfield for 36 years. I wrote many works for my school ensembles, and was comissioned to write finales for combined honor band /orchestra/ chorus at our Kern County Honor Festivals on several occasions. I retired in 2001, and have continued to compose for local groups in the Bakersfield area. My big project since retiring was to edit and submit my compositions on SibeliusMusic.com. I am enjoying the process, and would appreciate any comment or reviews on my music, positive or negative. Enjoy! Richard Meeks
