“Your music is a sensual delight!” —Marilyn Thelen.
It is notoriously difficult to describe music in words.
Please listen to one or more pieces on this website for an idea of my sound.
Most of my music is written for solo piano. It ranges from pieces for children to a concert étude of transcendant difficulty. I have also written for orchestra, concert band, brass quintet, organ, guitar, voice, and synthesizer.
My works are unabashedly tonal, seeking a direct connection with the listener. People are often surprised by how clearly and deeply they relate to my music.
