Jason is a dedicated composer of young band music, with 9 wind band titles to his name already, and several more jazz band and chamber titles. Join his project, which is outlined below:

Outline
Outline

The product produced will be a piece in standard concert band instrumentation, written to be accessible to middle school band students (i.e., grades 1-2). The piece will be between 2 and 4 minutes long. The composer retains all rights related to the work, including copyright and the right to seek publication of the work. 

Previous commissions:
"By the Sea of Crystal" (May 2015) - chamber winds, Kevin Gabrielse and the Godfrey-Lee High School Band, Wyoming, MI.  
"Untitled" (In Progress) - Grade 2-3 concert band, Byron Coulter and the St. David Bands, St. David, AZ.

Risks and challenges

Despite being a full-time teacher and graduate student, I dedicate time every week to compose. Setting the deadline for February assures the project will be completed in a reasonable time frame. It will likely be done before that date.
