He was elected president of the American Bandmasters Association (ABA) in 1963, and served on their board of directors as well as the board for the Midwest International Band and Orchestra Clinic.

He co-wrote a series of music theory and method books, a six volume guide to band arranging, and composed over 1,500 solo and ensemble works for young musicians.
