I’ve had a blast working with Luke for the past few years now. He is great at listening and working to get what you want and need to be successful. He knows how to write shows for small schools and would tell me if he felt something would not work for my group and why. I highly recommend Luke!
— Bobby Yerigan, Tolar HS Band (TX)
I wasn’t sure if Luke could provide a show that fit my group’s minimal instrumentation, but not only did he do that, our band achieved the best results in school history! Luke is a smart arranger and a great problem solver and will go above and beyond to assure your success. Luke is the man!
— Devin West, Gurdon HS Band (AR)
Luke was able to work with our budget to provide the perfect show for the level of my ensemble. Luke responds quickly to communication and was accommodating to our requests. Our show was entertaining for our audiences, and was received well by judges, as we earned our highest scores ever this year. He writes a great book, exactly to the level you need, delivered on time, and I highly recommend him.
