Commission a Piece
The greatest gift anyone can give a composer is the
chance to write a new piece!
Here are some ideas for commissioning
- for a special occasion, i.e. a solo violin piece for a wedding anniversary
- a piece that combines a specific jazz artist with a classical music ensemble
- an arrangement of a traditional song for non- traditional instrumentation
- a big band piece
- an orchestra piece
- a string quartet , sax quartet, or tuba quartet!
- a work that crosses disparate cultures, i.e., India and Jazz, Appalachia and Cuba, Rennaisance choral with Africa
We can work together to establish guidelines and goals
It is always worth considering co-commissions. More than one person can, of course, create a commission together.
