Did you notice that coat of arms in the upper right corner of the website?
That let's you know that I am now affiliated with Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia,
a national music fraternity for men. I am very pleased to be an honorary
member, and even more so, because students at the University of North
Texas recommended me for membership. They had a very nice ceremony
of induction, and it is very wonderful to be recognized in this way.
In February, 2009, I received the Community Arts Recognition Award
in the area of Arts Education from the Greater Denton Arts Council.

In 2013 the Texas Woman's University chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota, an
honorary fraternity for women, designated me a "Friend of Music".
I was very pleased and honored by this recognition from the students.
I met the North Texas Euphonium Quartet when they played an informal
concert on the Denton Square. I wrote SQUARAUQS for them, and they
have performed it several times in the last few months. It is a nice piece,
and these musicians make it sound very good. Click here to LISTEN.
Assistant Professor - Texas Woman's University (retired)
Board-Certified Music Therapist and Composer
When I retired I was given the position
of Denton County Composer in
Residence. I set up a computer at the
Bayless-Selby house and began
writing pieces for local ensembles. I
had to resign this position for health
reasons, but it was a good experience.
