Joining the MusicSpoke Roster

I’ve been waiting to post until my profile went live, and now it that it is, I can! I’m so excited to announce that I’ve recently joined the roster at MusicSpoke. MusicSpoke is a wonderfully innovative sheet music distribution platform created “by musicians, for musicians”. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to promote my scores to a larger network of conductors and performers, and to be part of such a welcoming, talented team. I have two pieces up at the moment, and will add more over the coming months. I hope you will visit my artist profile to see the pieces I have available, and I will keep you posted! I look forward to working with the MusicSpoke community.
