Music and Me

Graduate recital at the Provo Tabernacle, before it was destroyed by fire.

Selected Compositions

Most of my pieces listed below have links to downloadable PDFs. I hope you enjoy playing them—either from your own printed copies or from your favorite electronic music device. (My current favorite electronic device is the forScore app on my large iPad.)

A significant number contain revisions from the original versions published in paper format.
