He analyzed the band composition "Barbarossa" by William Himes, presenting a historical analysis of the composer and composition, theoretical and stylistic analysis of the score, and instructional suggestions for public school teachers. The piece was written to musically represent Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of the Soviet Union during World War II.
