Answers to commission questions:


  1. My email is, or you can contact me on Facebook or LinkedIn.

  2. I will listen to and consider your project, plans, or idea, even if there are obstacles in the way of commissioning a piece from me. Expect a response. 

  3. All my commissions are done under contract.

  4. I don't have rates but will certainly treat commissioners fairly. Like other musicians, a willingness to write a piece is a combination of pay, the ensemble, and my interest in the project. It's up to you to give me a fair bid, but I can make suggestions.

  5. If you tell me about one particular piece that I've written that you like, it can be helpful to me. 

  6. For larger commissions, half payment will be given in advance and the other half of the funds paid during the reception of the piece.

  7. For smaller commissions, a full payment is due immediately before the reception of the piece.

  8. A performance and a recording will be part of a musician's payment for a piece and part of the contract.

  9. All above, especially 3., are subject to change.
