His compositions have been featured in two Shenandoah New Music Collective concerts. In 2017, he received the William Averitt Prize for Excellence in Composition for his solo piano work Coax. In the fall of that same year, in collaboration with the Shenandoah Conservatory Theater department, he worked with director J.J. Ruscella to score a production of The Exonerated, written by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen. The following year Jarvis collaborated with Scott Hudson on a production of All In the Timing, written by David Ives. Jarvis also composed a short song cycle titled Eyes of Annie, with texts from the poetry of Emily Dickinson and Edgar Allan Poe. In the summer of 2018, he attended the Mostly Modern Festival held at Skidmore College, where the American Modern Ensemble premiered his sextet titled CrackDown. Outside of concert music, Jarvis is a singer/songwriter and a member of the music group TRI. He is currently working on a solo album that will be released later this year.
