Commissioning a new piece of music:
1. Think about- what will the music be for, what type of occasion, what venue, what voice and instruments, what length, and what players and level of difficulty?
2. I hope you will listen to some music I have already written to see whether something similar will fill your needs. On the Audio Samples page you can click on the play icon to listen, and if you would like to hear a composition other than what is there, please email me and I will make a demo recording available.
3. When you are ready you can let me know your needs and we can start discussing feasibility, timing and the commission fee. Fees vary greatly depending on the size of the project, the amount of the composer's time needed, and the level of formality and complexity required. Comparatively speaking, my fees are moderate.
4. I would recommend you visit the website of "Meet the Composer"
