I specialize in arranging and orchestration for recording purposes. I only do quality original arrangements for my clients and these scores are handed over to the client and are never used again for another client. I arrange on score paper and this is then handed over to a proffessional MAGA copyist. I write for any size of instrumentation and all arrangements are totally original as mentioned before. My other speciality is songwriting and I can provide assistance and guidence to anyone who needs help with their songs. I also have a first class recording facility that specialices in the recording of accoustic music I.e. using live musicians. The studio can accomadate up to 16 musicians and has a beautiful Yamaha Grand Piano (Model S400b / there top classical model) as well as a seperate drum and vocal room. I have produced many albums over the years for local club performers and various people in the Jazz area. Some of my best work has been two albums for local Jazz singer HELEN FENTON featuring the very best of Sydney's studio musicians. The band line up's were from quartet to standard big band and others with woodwinds and rhythm section and various combinations of string sections with french horns and woodwinds etc. All of these were totally original arrangements and the finished product attracted critical acclaim from many areas. For anyone contemplating this sort of venture I can provide a written quote which will cover the entire project from arranging and copying through to musicians costings / studio time and producing fees through to mastering at a fully proffessional mastering studio.
