Well, six months have gone by and I am now up to 18 pieces! The library will continue to grow, not only with band and orchestra pieces, but with solo and ensemble works and eventually jazz band pieces. I am loving the opportunity to write, something I did not always have time for while teaching. I still teach part-time and keep myself involved in music education by doing clinics and helping local teachers, plus going to conferences. I enjoy staying in touch with those in the trenches and love to help students learn the passion/love of music. I listen to ideas and am working on pieces that were suggested to me, such as, marches with extra percussion parts. Let me know what ideas you are looking for and I can contact you about them!
