A brief Bio...
I'm an older dude that's rather new at the comp game - who tries to keep my playing chops in shape by working in Indy area symphonic bands - and mentoring double reed students thru our local Phillips Guild group. Creds? I've earned my mMus in Composition from Butler Univ - and my BS in Electronic Engineering from Purdue. I also ran my own recording studio for many years.(Lest I forget, I'm an oboe/English horn player). My writing encompasses small ensemble works thru wind band material. Questions? Please email me! - or visit my website 700west.com
