I’ve been creating a lot of new pieces this year. In August I’ve been focusing on travel and photos, so it seems like nothing is happening musically. I get a boost from reviewing past work!

Through the Mist, trio for flute, violin, harp, downloadable mini-album
Play Book, piano pieces for students, book and CD/download
Spindrift Commissioning Guild 2012 projects :
Examinate Variations for flute and cello
Cascade (but need a new name) for the Yost Trio (flute, piano, percussion)
More chamber music :
