Welcome! Based in Los Angeles, I actively compose concert music for orchestra, chamber ensembles, and solo instruments around the world. I have a passion to help people deeply hear classical music through a blog and popular music lectures for the LA Philharmonic, New West Symphony, and other ensembles. I also conduct 120 talented students in the Los Angeles Youth Orchestra. From this site, I regularly email a large group of listeners—simply sign up by clicking FREE EMAIL SIGNUPS.
