We are a music company started by two music educators who have seen a need for high quality original and arranged works for young orchestras. Our company was founded in September 2004.

Joseph J. Phillips is currently the chief composer for Mountain Crest Music. His original compositions and arrangements regularly appear on best-seller and "editor's choice" lists of the nation's largest music distributors. In 1998, Mr. Phillips' Dorian Dance was selected as the winner of the Texas Orchestra Directors' Association Composition Contest. His Fantasia on an Original Theme was chosen as one of the 100 standard works for school orchestras, and appears in the popular book Teaching Music Through Performance in Orchestra, Volume 1. Mr. Phillips' other works have been published by Kendor Music, Highland-Etling (Alred), Southern Music, TRN Music Publishers, Young World Publications and Northfield Press. His successful career as a music administrator and teacher helps him understand the unique needs of school ensembles.

Wynne Easton Phillips has had a varied career as an elementary music teacher, customer service representative, head of refund processing, and tax professional. She received her Bachelor of Music degree from the Crane School of Music of the State University of New York at Potsdam and a Masters of Science in Taxation from the Zicklin School of Business.
