About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I've had several requests to upload my scores. Since I post my music in different places on the internet, and I post pretty often, I've been looking for a way to deliver scores to everybody who's asking for them in a speedy and consistent manner that's easy for everybody. Also, I want to maximize my time composing music to share with you and minimize time spent at the computer uploading files.

So, to make this easy for everybody, I've associated my scores with my free podcast. Whenever I post a new podcast episode, I will also offer the score. I'm uploading the scores to one server and distributing them via a list. If you would like to become a member of New Piano Music Scores, then you'll get an email notification when I post a new podcast episode and offer the score. You'll get a link to download the score for free. To become a member of New Piano Music Scores, go to

A little about my background:

Pianist from age 5, had classical lessons for years and learned jazz in college. Listened to all kinds of music as a child - Bach to Bartok to Beetles. Studied harmony, theory and ethnomusicology at U.C. Berkeley, commercial arranging and film music at Berklee College of Music, and traditional composition and piano performance at New York University. I have a Level 10 Royal Conservatory of Music certificate in piano performance. These days, I compose mostly for piano, my first love and still my greatest love. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. In the past, I've written gaming music, film music, tunes for jazz combo and a little bit of everything.

I have a free, weekly podcast. You can subscribe to it through iTunes by searching on "New Piano Music Podcast." The logo is a blue square with the words "new piano music." You can also subscribe by going to and clicking on the "Subscribe to this feed" link. The third way is to paste the above URL into your podcast playing software.
