Arrangements and Publications
There is more to music than studying one instrument. It is my own belief that music should be studied beyond a single instrument, and as a result, I have arranged and composed music and encourage my students to do so as well. In addition, I have written on the status of music and music education, with several publications in process which will be released in the next few years. Please find below a listing of compositions, arrangements, articles, and publications.
