|Balance in All Things (2005)

|God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (Arrangement, 2006)
Description: Here is a simple and slightly jazzy arrangement of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. It's a lead sheet with chords and melody.
|Christmas Time Is Here (Transcription, 2005)

|My Favorite Things (Arrangement, 2006)
