Well it's been over a month since I've posted anything, so it's about time for an update. My contract with Lorenz/Latham Music has expired. What does this mean? For me, it means that my association with Lorenz and my former catalog has ceased to exist. There will be no further additions to the Latham Music catalog (at least not from me). For dealers and customers, there will be no change. Everything published under Latham Music and Lorenz will still be available at www.lorenz.com and from dealers worldwide.

So what is new? I'm the new string editor for LudwigMasters Publications. There will be plenty more music to come, from me and from most of the composers and arrangers you've come to know and love over the last 20 years. I thank Leon Galison for saving me from the ranks of the unemployed and I look forward to a long and fruitful association with his company. Thankfully, he saw that I still have something to offer this business. I'm not moving, staying right here in NC and working from my home office. I will however be doing more traveling and if you have workshops/clinics, conducting, coaching or state conferences for which you need a clinician, please contact me.

I'm looking forward to starting this new chapter in my life. I have lots of ideas for chamber music and am excited to get moving on those. So, be on the lookout, it won't be long before you will see new music!
