I'm very excited to announce a new commission from the Fort Worth Music Teachers Association. I have been asked to compose a piano duet to be performed by FWMTA's 6-8 grade piano ensemble at the Texas Music Teachers Association state convention in June 2016. Also at the state convention, FWMTA's high school piano ensemble will perform my piano duet, Mechanisms.
Both the commission and the performance of my previous work are in conjunction with my commission from TMTA as their composer of the year - an honor for which I was nominated by FWMTA.
I'm very excited about these performances celebrating the many forms of music education not only in my hometown, but my entire home state.
