Arranging and Production

READY TO TAKE YOUR TRACK OVER THE TOP?
Let us put strings or brass on your next project. You’ve come this far with your song, and put your hard-earned money into your dream. Now is not the time to entrust your music to bargain basement arrangers. NOW is the time to hire a professional.

I have over thirty years in the business, have written literally thousands of scores and produced hundreds of sessions. Check this page for a list of artists who have trusted me with their music.

No project is too big or too small, please contact me and we can discuss what is right for YOU.

My pricing is competitive and I accept major credit cards through PayPal.

Don’t live near Nashville? If you have no budget for travel in this project, you have the option to enjoy your recording session via your web browser from the comfort of your own studio or home. You will hear everything going through the board, all open mikes and talkback. Communicate with the whole team during the session with an on screen chat box, or via skype.

Composition

I am available as a composer for film, television, gaming and library work. Aside from the work listed in my credits, you can visit the Constant Dreamer store to hear some of my albums.

    I am a Christian artist/Classics singer and just launched my big band CD, “Singing the Sky Blue” in France a few months ago. I am getting interest here in the states and one orchestra leader asked me about arrangements. I would like to look through your store as well as speak with you about custom arrangements. Thank you.

    I am interested in purchasing some of your big band charts for Christian music. Do you have a catalogue to order from?

      Hi Alan- the older charts from Big Band Hymns are sold exclusively by Greenhill Music. Unfortunately, they no longer have a web store.
      You will need to call Melissa Chambers at (615) 312.5652, she can process your order.

      The new charts from “No Pews Required” can be found right here- on the right side of the top bar, click “shop”, then “Constant Dreamer Store”, then “Arrangements”.

      Thanks,

      Chris

    Did you do the arrangements for the Brentwood Jazz Orchestra session which included Rock of Ages and, if so, are the arrangements available?

    I own several of your CDs. Is there any way I can get copies of the sheet music used in your Big Band Christmas album?

    Gob-smacked by “Stardust” arrangement – BIG BAND CLASSICS as heard just now on MUSIC CHOICE, “Singers and Swing” channel. Congrats on brilliant work.

      Why, thank you Harold-what a nice thing to say. That beautiful flugelhorn work is by George Tidwell, and the sultry tenor is Denis Solee, both Music City jazz legends.

    Hi Chris !
    I am blown away by your arrangement of “Use Me” for the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. Your orchestration is amazing ! The lush harmonies and the various instruments are perfection. There aren’t really any words to describe how much it moves me. I’d like to find charts for the vocals and choir parts for our church. Unfortunately we don’t have an orchestra to play those parts. Do you know of any available for purchase ?

    I haven’t heard your other work yet, since I just discovered who wrote that beautiful arrangement of “Use Me” but you can be sure I’m going to check out your music !

    Please keep up your amazing work !

    Blessings,
    Betty
