Commission New Music

Commissioning music is an If you have an idea for a new piece of music, please contact me. Commissioning a new composition is a creative endeavor, and everything is negotiable.  I've written pieces for concerts, stage and screen, for standard ensembles, bizarre combinations of instruments, for films producers, or to celebrate anniversaries.  Writing new music is what I love to do, and all we need is an agreement to start the process.

Due to my work as a music professor the time it takes to create new music can sometimes be up to 12 months, but I can also work quickly if it's the right project and provide you music in a couple weeks depending on the parameters.

Here are some guidelines from various sources:
