The creation of a new piece is an unpredictable journey.  The process for discovering each piece is always different and unique in its own way.

Through this project, I would like to share this exhilarating journey with you, inviting you to step inside my musical world as this new piece commissioned by the SFJazz Collective unfolds.  You will witness the work as it evolves from my initial musical thoughts into to a full realized piece of music.

In my own words, I will be guiding you through the piece, telling you what to listen for and what my inspirations were, allowing you to explore and experience the piece through new ears. 

You can also email me with questions about my creative process and this piece; I am picking a selection of questions to answer in the form of streaming video segments that are made available to all participants.

Your name will be listed as a participant on the final pages of the published score and you will receive a video guide from me describing and taking you through the piece, enhancing your listening process and following along with the study score if you so wish.

This offer is for the music lover...the skillful listeners!

I look forward to sharing this unique journey with all of you.
