Latest: American Pen Women Award 2018

I’ve been selected as the recipient of the American Pen Women Award 2018 for Music Composition! The mission of the League is to encourage the production of creative work of professional standards in art, letters and music and to provide activities and educational, creative and professional support to non-members in those fields via outreach.
The award ceremony is on April 14, 2018. I’ll have more to report then.

Embraces the Expressive and Melodic

I compose to express for others the things they can’t say for themselves.  I focus on the audience. Who I am writing for? Who will hear me. Why will they listen? I create music that is intellectually and emotionally satisfying and accessible to people who never studied music as well as those who did.
