Described as "fresh and imaginative," (Percussive Notes), his band and percussion works are quickly gaining international recognition with performances at educational institutions of all levels, festivals/contests, and music conferences around the world.

    Comments:

    Really neat percussion ensemble piece. Not too hard to play, comes together well, and sounds impressive when put together. I recommend it for a percussion ensemble that is newer or just starting to gain momentum and wants a very "playable" but exciting/impressive piece.
