You were great; We would have been much less efficient on the session without you. Thank you!
I'm a professional music engraver, music copyist, music librarian, proofreader, editor, score producer and educator. I've had the privilege of working with many of today's top composers, orchestras and star performers preparing music for everything from film score and CD recordings to symphonic pops concerts.
I am currently the Lead Arranger and Orchestrator for "rePLAY > Symphony of Heroes" - a touring concert event which features the symphonic scores and stunning visuals of video games such as Portal, World of Warcraft, God of War, Bioshock, Journey, The Legend of Zelda, The Elder Scrolls, and others. I have a number of feature film, album and video game soundtrack credits.
My company, RPM Seattle Music Preparation, has prepared scores and parts for over 100 feature films since 1995. My success in this field wouldn't be possible without all the great copyists, engravers, proofreaders and others who have worked with me over the years at RPM.
I'm a professional woodwind performer who reads and improvises on alto saxophone, clarinet, soprano sax and flute. A veteran session musician, I have numerous recording and performance credits. I enjoy performing in wide range of musical styles, from jazz and latin to rock, ethnic or more avant garde music styles.
I offer group workshops in notation using Finale or Sibelius, either focused on one notation program, or showing similar techniques applied to both programs.
Do you have a compelling question about Finale or Sibelius? Something that you haven't been able to find the answer to? Visit my notation blog, and try my unique notation web search to see if your question has been answered before, then email me: I may post a short tutorial.
