About My
Piano Works

My piano music is inspired by canonic, classical keyboard repertoire. It has been my goal to compose music for pianists that is both practical and engaging. Immediate accessibility, idiomatic keyboard writing, and stylistic eclecticism are three hallmarks of my piano music. Following in the traditions of the great pianist/composers of the past, I have composed piano music that appeals to students, teachers, amateurs, and virtuoso classical pianists.

Some of my piano music has been recognized in competitive submissions/ calls for scores including the New York City Contemporary Music Symposium at Columbia University (Three Inventions- FINALIST) and by New York City's Locrian Chamber Players- Call for Scores (Five Pages From A City Journal-WINNER). My piano music falls neatly into 5 categories: Easy piano music (early intermediate to early advanced), neoclassical works, eclectic-contemporary works, collaborative piano works, and piano with orchestra. Below you will find links to SHEETMUSICDIRECT to purchase scores.
