I accept commissions based on availability. While you are welcome to propose a piece anytime throughout the year, the best time to make a request is in the Spring, as I do a lot of writing during the Summer.

Most arranging I do is licensed through Hal Leonard’s ArrangeMe platform. If a song you want arranged for general use is available for licensing there, I won’t charge you anything directly but will arrange and upload it for your purchase there. The prices are set for band and orchestras at $49.99 and choral music costs $1.99 a copy. This easy licensing process does not work for more custom arrangements such as marching band shows, or for mash-ups or medleys.
A more custom arrangement, or an arrangement of a title not available through ArrangeMe, has the same base fee as an original composition, but I will also pass any licensing fees to you. I won’t start writing an arrangement without a license, and I won’t purchase a license without your approval. Be aware that it can take several weeks to reach the publisher. Make sure this fits your timeline.
Contact for pricing, but a good estimate is the base price per movement or per 5 minutes.
Unless otherwise negotiated, I will grant you nonexclusive non-commercial print and performance rights to the music you commission. You may also make a non-commercial recording, provided you give me a copy. I retain copyright, including any commercial use.
I enjoy work as a collaborative songwriter, mostly in musical theater. If you have a show idea and you have a clear production timeline and performance plans, I may be interested in being a part of it. Contact me.
My standard fee for background music for video games, YouTube channels, songs, etc. is $50 per track, delivered in 48 kHz, 24-bit WAV format. I will edit vocals for an additional $25/voice/track if needed. Describe as fully as you can the sound or feeling you want. Reference tracks are great.
If your project requires a large amount of music, please contact to negotiate pricing.
