Original Music for Big Band

Welcome

I have a repertoire approximately 15 original compositions for Big Band. The selections vary in difficulty from moderate to advanced. I have performed this music with the BMI Jazz Composer's Orchestra, the Brooklyn Jazz Composer's Orchestra (which I co-founded with Jeff Raheb), students from the Arhus Conservatory of Music and students from the Lichtenstein Big Band. I am available to bring these original big band compositions to your high school or university and rehearse/perform them with your student musicians.
