SERVICES

Please see below for more information about my services as composer, pianist, and educator:

COMPOSITION

I am happy to consider commissioning opportunities of any size or genre, including works for personal occasions (birthdays, anniversaries, memorials, etc). Particular areas of expertise for me include music for dance, vocal music, solo piano, and chamber works.

I have great respect for the substantial investment that commissioning a composer can take. It is vital to the survival of the arts that the process continue, so I encourage you to consider supporting new work in this way. As a return on your investment, here is what I can offer:

1) A finished, signed copy of the engraved score
2) A notice in the score and in the official program notes of your role in the creation of the piece
3) Some autograph sketch or score material (if requested)
4) Acknowledgment on my website
5) A recording of the work’s premiere (or other available performance)
6) Most important: the existence of a new piece of music and the knowledge that you made it possible

More information, including a basic pricing guide, can be found in my commissioning packet.

For a list of prospective new works seeking funding, please see my most recent specs for proposed projects.

There are also opportunities to commission work from me on a smaller scale through my Patreon.

 

PERFORMANCE

I hold a Doctor of Music degree in piano performance from Northwestern University, as well as performance degrees from Indiana University and New England Conservatory. I’m an experienced recitalist, chamber musician, and collaborative pianist, and I’m available for all of the above, including performances of new music. I also have extensive experience performing with dancers.

There are videos posted of me playing Godowsky, Bach-Busoni (with dance), Janáček, Ravel (with violin), Kurtág (4-hands), in addition to my own music.

There are also live audio recordings on my Patreon of Rachmaninoff and Liszt.

Pricing will depend on specifics; please inquire!

TEACHING & COACHING

I have over a decade of experience teaching music at the college/conservatory level. This includes music theory, aural skills, keyboard harmony, music history/appreciation, and piano performance. I’ve given masterclasses in piano and composition, and I’ve also taught music courses for dancers at NYU and Peridance.

I don’t currently have video examples of lectures/masterclasses, but I can share this conversation I led at NYU with Arnold Greissle-Schönberg (grandson of the composer).

Please inquire for private lessons, masterclasses, and more!

VOCAL RECORDINGS

I’m currently available to create custom, high-quality recordings of piano parts of vocal repertoire for vocalists who are unable to rehearse with pianists during quarantine.

Rate:

$40 for an mp3 recording within one week
+ $15 for rush (within 3 days)
+ $20 for a work that’s unusually long or demanding

Student discount available; also ask about quantity discounts through my Patreon.
