Attention Band Directors!

If you have ever wanted to commission a new piece for your ensemble but did not have the necessary funds, consider joining this consortium! I'm organizing a group of directors and ensembles to join together and share the commissioning fees. Many composers and directors are going this route with much success and positive experiences! I have done this for choral music, and am excited to go this direction with band music as well. 

I will be writing a 3-4 minute work for concert band. This will be a melodic driven work with diatonic harmonies. The piece will help young players develop skills in balance and intonation. This will be a piece that can be used for concert and contest as well, but the over-arching goal is to help musicianship growth in young players.

I'm organizing the consortium through the web-based platform Consortio, a site dedicated to "Making commissioning new music easy- and affordable."
