These clips are from my Mini Musical: Staring at My Future, a story that follows a girl through trials, loss, temptation, and redemption. These pieces illustrate the different styles in which I can work. The first piece is based on a fairly traditional waltz. The second is based on a contemporary pop style. The third is a tango. The fourth is a classical piece for pipe organ with a complex pedal (bass) line. The fifth is based on a contemporary Christian worship song style.
In the first song, I worked with a large ensemble of instruments, including first and second trumpets, a trombone, a tuba, a harp, first and second violins, a cello, and voice to carry the melody. The second song was written for piano and voice. The third was written for two classical guitars, a piano, a clarinet, and voice. The fourth used a pipe organ. The fifth used voice, piano, first and second violin, viola, and cello.
