Dr. Heuser has received commissions from such ensembles as the San Antonio Symphony, the New York Youth Symphony, the Texas Music Festival Orchestra, and the SOLI Chamber Ensemble. His music has won many awards, including the Columbia Orchestra American Composer Competition and the Dallas Wind Symphony Brass Fanfare Competition.

His degrees are from the Eastman School of Music and the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. A native of New Jersey, Heuser resided in San Antonio for 14 years, where he was a Professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio teaching music composition and theory. Since July 2011 he has been the Associate Dean at the Crane School of Music in Potsdam, New York. His music is published by Non Sequitur Music, and works of his can be found on recordings on the Albany, Capstone, and Equilibrium labels, as well as on CDs released by the Cactus Pear Music Festival and the Composers Alliance of San Antonio.
