“The Ballad of the Bees” Audiobook Soundtrack

I recently composed some of the music for a children’s audio book by Sedona children’s author, Timothy Stuetz! It is titled “The Ballad of the Bees” and has both audio and hard-copy versions! For the music I created, I used my SG-12 Chapman Stick with guitar synthesizer so I was able to provide all manner of different feelings, tones and timbres. Combined with character voices and even an orchestra, it sounds great and I think kids of all ages will love it! I’m proud to have been a part of the project!

Emmett and The Stick at the Musical Instrument Museum in Scottsdale, AZ


A very special moment indeed! Emmett Chapman is just now seeing for the very first time the exhibit for The Stick at Musical Instrument Museum, Scottsdale, AZ, on April 20th with Steve Adelson of New Yok! There were only a few people present and I was very grateful to be one of them!

That afternoon Emmett and Steve gave a lecture and at then gave a concert! All of these events tied into the Musical Instrument Museum’s 5th Anniversary Gala How proud I was to see Emmett receiving just a little bit of the recognition he’s due for his invention of this amazing instrument 40 years ago!
