Presently all of my works all self-published. I can take payments through e-transfer or PayPal.
I'm interested in commissioning a new work. How does this work?
I presently have room for one or two small commissions in 2021, but am otherwise booking late 2022 and beyond. Please contact me with your idea (no matter how small or well-formed it is(n't)!) and we can take it from there. Consider what instrumentation you'd like, the length of the piece, and your desired timeline.
For pricing, I begin with basing my rates on the recommendations of the Canadian League of Composers and from there we can negotiate. At this time I do my own copying, and I prefer to charge hourly clerical fees ($25/hour) as I feel this is more fair to both parties.
What if I can't quite afford it? Contact me nonetheless! What is the use of a creative mind if I can't use it to come up with creative solutions?
Can I hire you to arrange music for my ensemble?
Yes! Absolutely! I love arranging music.
As this type of work uses a different part of the brain, I can easilly fit arranging projects in and around bigger commissions. Contact me at any time if you would like my services.
My dog ate my part. Or at least that's what my student told me...
If refering to an original piece of mine, contact me at any time for replacement parts. Digital replacements are free of charge.
If refering to other high school or elementary band pieces, I can take the hassle off your hands of creating replacement trumpet or percussion parts (or whichever instrument it is). Contact me to learn more.
What happened to your blog?
You're too kind. I stopped blogging as it wasn't a true representation of what I want to do with my time. However, if you'd still like to read my posts, they are archived here.
