Whether arranging popular songs for orchestra, creating sing-along tracks, or making Tchaikovsky's violin concerto sound great on calliope, I can make it work. Large or small ensembles, computer MIDI arrangements, or fully produced recordings.
Send me your MIDI files and I can create fully orchestrated versions of your music. I can also work from printed scores and audio recordings.
Having composed large- and small-scale works in virtually every genre, I can comfortably create scores for films, and commercials in every style. From opera to punk, and solo guitar to massive orchestra with chorus and huge percussion section, I can make any ensemble work with every mood you need.
Scores, parts and lead sheets. I will transform your printed, MIDI, or handwritten scores into high-quality engravings in Finale notation program.
