The Music of


Musical Thoughts

Well, I think the pandemic is over, or at least on tis way out.  Who would have thought it would affect our music scene so much?   Oh my.  What is your take on music in the world today.  Do you miss the new sounds?  Do you like the old sounds?   Live music,  Zoom youtube in panels, playing or singing away.   When did you last travel somewhere?  Well, listen to the Pines of Rome for a journey in Rome and Italy. 

Here you will find a variety of my musical endeavors, from transcriptions of old favorites to new works with an old world charm.  If you happen to be in a musical ensemble and find a piece you may want to perform just contact me or check out J.W. Pepper's website and search for "Winkelman".  If the piece does not show up at J.W. Pepper then just email me and I can arrange to get you a performance copy for your group.

I would love to have a recording of your group performing one of my pieces.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by e-mail at

I also have a chamber orchestra piece recently performed as it was a winner in the Minnesota Sinfonia's composition search which I entered.  The name of the piece is "Mr. Toad's Adventurous Ride"
