HI,
I'm a composer, arranger, producer and pianist/keyboardist with a wide range of knowledge and experience in a variety of musical applications.

Service Description

I offer a number of varied musical services:

• Custom-written original recorded instrumental music (or arrangements of existing music) for any situation

This might be background music for a video, film, presentation, radio ad, or any other kind of project. Everything about the music is custom-designed for the purpose of the project at hand. We'll go over the type of music (orchestral/film-score, pop/rock, funk, jazz, blues, hip-hop, world-music, etc.), instrumentation, length, mood and more. The music can be synchronized to visuals if required including 'hitting' specified 'sync points'. Just about anything is possible. The finished product will be delivered as a high-quality WAV or AIFF file.

• Recorded Jingles & Radio Spots

• Custom-written original music and arrangements of existing music for live performance.

I have experience writing and arranging for a wide variety of live ensembles, including full orchestras and big-bands. I've written for musical theater in New York and Boston, as well as educational choral arrangements for Hal Leonard Corporation. My scores and parts are created using Finale® notation software, and I take the time to make sure everything in...
