My name is Joe Huls, and I am a former Band Director of 14 years from Cobb County GA. I am now full time visual designer living in the UK. I have been writing and arranging since 2003 and have had the opportunity to write for bands at almost every level. From locally competitive bands all the way up to Big Ten Universities, and color guards and indoor drumlines of all levels from the local circuits all the way up to WGI finalist color guards.
I would love to help you plan and execute your next production, whether it be pre-arranged or custom. Or maybe you would like help with Pyware, take a look at my tutorial series or free workflow PDFs.
