Claire's Waltz (Piano Solo)
Score (PDF)
Price: $1.95

This piano solo was the original piece I composed for a new play premiered in Chicago in October, 2013 called Joint Attention by Pat Curtis. The waltz became the source for the themes that were used in the music cues for the staging by Three Cat Productions. Listen to a MIDI recording of the piece on the Transcription and Arranging page.

Dave's Lament
Dave's Lament
Piano Solo (PDF)
Price: $1.95

Dave’s Lament was added to the music for Joint Attention when I decided (for my own purposes as composer) that Dave – husband of Claire in the above waltz – was a jazz pianist who worked through his troubles at the piano. His tune borrows melodies from Claire’s Waltz and sets them in a very different atmosphere. Listen to a MIDI recording of the arrangement on the Transcription and Arranging page.

Available Qty: 96
Price: $6.95

This four-hands-one-piano arrangement of Handful of Keys is based on my own transcription of “Fats” Waller’s famous barn burner. I love this tune but I wasn’t able to manage the breakneck tempo (particularly in the left hand) so I turned it into a duet for four hands that are perhaps smaller and less athletic than Maestro Waller’s prodigious mitts. It’s still challenging despite the division of labor – but it’s a blast to play! Listen to a MIDI recording of the arrangement on the Transcription and Arranging page.

I discovered Haydn’s Il Maestro e Lo Scolare by accident while browsing YouTube classical music videos. The call and response scheme is musically very fun and pedagogically very effective!
