I've been playing violin for about 18 years, and playing with composition and arranging about as long. The content on this site are creations, arrangements (and possibly some recordings) of mine that I thought may be useful for other people.

Living Word Chamber Ensemble
A number of musicians at our church who play
classical instruments got together and formed an ensemble. Many of the Christmas carols and hymns
on this site were arranged for the group. The group has changed a little bit with instrumentation, but has typically included violin(s), flute, oboe, clarinet and sometimes a piano. We hope to
continue to expand and to do more; however, we have lives, (non-musical) jobs and other responsibilities.
The ensemble played before the 2008 Christmas service, and planned to perform during the 2009 Christmas service. The arrangements of traditional carols are available as PDF, MIDI, and lilypond source. The original music is public domain, the arrangements are copyright J. A. Streich and can be used under Creative Commons Share Alike Attribution license.
This is a collection of old hymns originally in the public domain, I arranged them for ensemble and have made my arrangements available under Creative Commons Share Alike Attribution license. We played some of these hymns for Easter, but they are good for just about any service.
This is a collection of midi files of a few pieces I wrote in high school and my first few years in college. Most of them are experiments and me learning the basics of music theory.
