Recording Samples
Here are projects you can listen to now for a sample of my work. If you would like to hear a sample of a genre or album that is not provided, please contact me and I would be happy to provide it if possible.

*Please Note*
Spotify applies loudness normalization to all audio it streams, forcing it to a level of approx. -14LUFS
For classical and acoustic works with a large dynamic range, this unfortunately often results in audible clipping.
Any clipping you hear in these examples is the result of Spotify's normalization. Please contact me if you would like to hear masters of any of this material.

 

 

Live Recording / Session Recording / Recording Services

Recording/Editing/Mixing/Mastering services are available at a cost of $50/hr.
For larger projects with a fixed budget a total price can be negotiated prior to beginning work to guard against budget overruns. Please contact for an estimate.

Recording
Stereo and multitrack on-location recording to meet the needs of any event or session. I specialize in recording classical, jazz and acoustic events and can accommodate anything from a piano recital to a fully staged opera, or jazz trio to full big band. I am also well versed with popular styles and offer live location recordings, and work with area studios to accommodate studio sessions. If you have a band and do not have the time or money for a studio demo or album, consider a live recording. A live recording captures the energy and spontaneity of a performance that can be lost in the studio and can yield excellent results. Please contact for details.

Editing
Digital audio editing can carefully piece together multiple takes into one perfect run. We are all accustomed to hearing nearly perfect recordings when listening to a CD and when approached carefully editing can be done without compromising a performance or interpretation. I take great care to ensure that my editing is completely seamless and transparent.

Mixing
If you have multitrack material recorded and want to get a polished ‘album’ sound.
Whether it’s a classical, jazz, or popular style, a solid mix will make sure your project sounds big and balanced and has the impact to move your audience. Tuned vocals can correct a pitchy take or extreme auto tune effects can deliver a creative touch. Drums can be augmented or replaced with samples for that larger than life studio drum sound. I will work closely with you to achieve your creative vision.

Mastering
Mastering is about so much more than making a track LOUD!!
It is the final set of adjustments and balancing that turns a collection of songs into a cohesive set and a flowing musical experience. Mastering can include EQ, small amounts of compression, sweetening, stereo balancing, opening up the sound stage, and leveling to bring your mix up to the desired volume.
For more information on Mastering please see my Introduction to Mastering page
which discuses workflow and concepts.

it is not possible in all venues and there is an additional cost. Contact for details.

 

Individual Portfolio Recording Packages
As music students and professionals grow and develop, their recorded portfolios
must be able to evolve with them. Since recording and collaborative pianists can be expensive,
I offer packages that to be able to update your portfolio for a reduced price so you
do not have to think twice about keeping it current.
Basic Portfolio Package – Includes a 2 hour recording session and 2 hours of editing and revisions. 2 years of update reduced pricing - additional pieces can be added to your portfolio for a flat fee of $50/ea for 60mins of recording time with editing and CD update included at no additional cost.
CD Mastering and basic noise reduction included at no additional cost. - $200

Deluxe Portfolio Package – Includes 4 hours of session recording, 3 hours of editing and revisions. 2 years of update reduced pricing - additional pieces can be added to your portfolio for a flat fee of $50/ea for 60mins of recording time with editing and CD update included at no additional cost.
CD Mastering and basic noise reduction included at no additional cost. - $300


Cancellations – For live recordings, please give notice of cancellations no later than 24hrs prior to the event. If notice is given at least 24hrs prior to the event there is no cost to cancel or reschedule (keep in mind that my schedule can be very full in peak seasons, so please try to reschedule as early as possible). If notice is given with less than 24hrs there is a $50 cancellation fee (this fee may be waved in the case of sudden illness, family emergency, or cancellations caused by the venue). If notice is not given and I show up at the venue,
the full cost of the recording will apply.

Large Scale Projects and Album Recordings
All large scale and album recording projects are charged hourly at a rate of $50/hr for recording, mixing, and mastering. For projects that are grant, university funded, or on a fixed budget a total can be
negotiated in advance. I take great strides to be sure that projects stay on time and within budget.
The basic estimate for a large scale project is Recording time + 2X Recording time for post production.
