I wanted to thank you for publishing your music.  I am delighted with the music I downloaded.  I am going to use it with one of my students – and I always play new music that I acquire before assigning it out.  [Flight of the Bumblebee] was a very enjoyable piece – and I’m excited to have her play it. I also enjoyed both of the Dances that you were offering for free.  I have another student who I’ll share those with. I’m so happy that I saw the post on Facebook about you and your music.

I can’t tell you how much I enjoy your arrangement of “Does the Journey Seem Long?” and how inspiring it has been to me personally. I began learning it several months ago to play in Sacrament Meeting, but was waiting for an appropriate time. As the music chair in my ward, I wanted to make sure it supported the theme of the talks. There were a couple of times I was ready to add it to the program, only to remove it because it didn’t feel right. This week’s theme was “Knowing Our Heavenly Father and Our Savior.” I thought it was a stretch, but felt prompted to finally perform it. The sister who spoke just before the musical number shared some beautiful experiences that aligned perfectly with the text of this hymn and I knew why I had waited. Spontaneously, I decided to introduce the song, in relation to the talk, before I sat down to play and was humbled by how many people opened their hymn books to follow along. Your arrangements are truly inspired and this one paints such a lovely image of the triumphant reunion with our Heavenly Father. Many members shared with me afterwards how touched they were by your arrangement. So, thank you! Thank you for sharing your talent! You are doing a great work.

I discovered an arrangement of yours (Master, the Tempest Is Raging) on LDS.org. I’m sorry to say that I didn’t recognize your name, having never come across your music before. Sorry to say, because I love the arrangement and can’t wait to explore other music by you. It’s wonderful to find music that is beautiful, accessible, and uplifting. I look forward to discovering more of your compositions.
