Here are two examples of my work as arranger and orchestrator.
KAYA - this is an arrangement I did for Stewart Copeland (composer and founder of The Police) who was my student in orchestration for several years. Originally for piano and marimba, I arranged it at Stewart's request for clarinet, trumpet, violin, bass, piano, and percussion. It was premiered at the La Jolla Summerfest in 2009.
SUITE FROM "AVATAR - THE LAST AIRBENDER" and SUITE FROM "THE LEGEND OF KORRA" - I orchestrated music by Jeremy Zuckerman which was taken from his two acclaimed TV animation series on Nickelodeon. Jeremy studied composition with me for a few years. The SUITES were premiered in the summer of 2014 at PLAYFEST, a festival of music for animation and game music in Málaga, Spain; they were performed by the Málaga Philharmonica and Chorus at the outdoor 1,000 year old Castillo Sohail. The soloist on Chinese ethnic instruments is virtuoso, Hong Wang.
