Music Arranger and Composer

Do you have a composition or arrangement that you need to polish for publication? Have you looked for a music arranger with no success?

Or do you want new music to use yourself or with students? Are you searching for flute music that you won’t find anywhere else?

As a music arranger, composer, and engraver, I can help you with original compositions and unique arrangements.

I focus on creating music for solo flute and chamber flute/woodwind groups.

How I can help:

  • Compose original music
  • Arrange existing music
  • Engrave existing music
  • Self publish music
  • Record tracks (flute, piccolo, alto flute)
  • Other services available by request

What would it feel like to:

  • Play new music yourself or with students?
  • Expand your solo and chamber repertoire?
  • Finally publish the composition you’ve been working on?
  • Support a living musician, just like you?

I know what it’s like to:

  • Struggle to find good repertoire.
  • Get stuck playing the same old music.
  • Feel bored using the same old lesson materials.
  • Have a composition sit in my drafts for months.

And I also know what it’s like to:

  • Look forward to learning new music.
  • Have fun playing pieces as a soloist or part of a group.
  • Get that new composition out there to the world.
  • Enjoy the process of creating and making music.

Now, it’s your turn.

Being a music arranger isn’t for every musician. But without new compositions and arrangements, we’d all be stuck playing Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven.

Not that those composers are bad. They were some of the most important composers of all time.

However, the world is changing, and music by new composers is becoming more important. As new flute and woodwind groups pop up, the need for new instrumentation is growing.

You need to find music that you can perform with the musicians you have. And you may not always have access to certain “standard” instruments.

Music Arranger FAQs

Still unsure if you should work with a music arranger? Here are some common questions and their answers!

What’s your composition background?

I first started composing in high school and took a music composition class in college. While I didn’t major in composition, my background as a flute and woodwind player prepared me to write for those instruments.

What’s your composition process?

Once I determine an instrumentation and the overall plan for the piece, I will start to improvise to find a good melody. Then, I’ll write it out in notation software and start adding more parts (when applicable).

After that, I will listen back and make any edits to the notes, articulations, and dynamics. Finally, I will export the sheet music and a digital rendering of the audio.

Can I listen to more of your work?

Absolutely! You can check out some recordings of my work on my YouTube channel.

What instruments do you write for?

I write for common members of the concert flute family (flute, piccolo, alto, bass, contrabass). In an ensemble with flutes, I write for other woodwinds as well as piano.

Why don’t you write for just any instrument?

I believe it’s important for music to work for the performer. Because of that, I only write for instruments I’ve played before and have a good understanding of.

Do you record example tracks?

I can record example tracks for flute, piccolo, and alto flute. However, I don’t own other woodwinds to record tracks. For other instruments, I can provide a digital rendering of the audio.

What’s your turnaround time?

The turnaround time depends on the scope of the piece. Please contact me with the details of your project for more information.

How much do you charge?

The price for commissions and other projects varies. Please contact me with the details of your project for more information.
