Online Music Composition and Editing

Have an idea for tubular bells and string orchestra, but don't know where to start? I can work with any recorded or written creative work, and expand it to fit your instrumentation desires.

Have you already written your next Grammy award-winning composition, but are worried there might be some errors in the music? As a musician who's worked in the music industry for 20 + years, I have developed ears that are attuned to notice any "inconsistencies" that may exist. In other words, I'm an excellent music critic. I will offer suggestions to "fix" these flaws, and compose some examples, depending on the genre you are working in.

Samples of my music editing composition work are available upon request, thank you!
