Music for Advertising

Transcriptions and Lead Sheets

Over the last 30 years, I’ve written hundreds of jingles and underscores for radio and TV advertising. Most of these have been in conjunction with Jim De Koch of The dk Company.

If you are a business owner or ad agency looking for music to help define and enhance your image (or your client's image) look no further.

If you’re a singer or band looking for a lead sheet, chord chart or transcription/arrangement of an existing song, I’m at your service. I’m well known for charts that are clear, concise and accurate.

I’ve also done 2 albums of library music for Sonic Fire Pro from Smart Sound.

Custom Arrangements and Compositions

I’m a very experienced arranger and composer for school, church and theater groups. The Fireside Dinner Theater, Milwaukee Rep, American Players Theatre and Prairie School are just a few of the professional organizations and schools that I’ve provided with arrangements, original compositions and even sound design.

This is a montage of compositions written for American Players Theatre in Spring Green, WI. These were for productions of Shakespeare's "The Winter's Tale", "King Lear", "Macbeth", "As You Like It" and a modern play titled "A Penny for a Song".

Here is another montage demo. This one consists of Christmas arrangements I wrote in 2016 for the Fireside Dinner Theater in Fort Atkinson, WI. These were recorded with a live orchestra at Tanner-Monagle studios in Milwaukee, WI.

Rates for all compositions, arrangements and charts are quoted on a case by case basis.
