About Me

I’ve been a barbershopper since 1991 and an arranger since 1999. I’ve sung with St. Louis Harmony, Greater Harrisburg, and Vienna-Falls Choruses; I’m currently a Chapter at Large member in Sweet Adelines and a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society. I was a scholarship recipient in the former Sweet Adelines International Music Arrangers Program, and my arrangements have been performed by choruses and quartets all over the world, at both the regional and international levels. I’m active as a mentor for beginning and intermediate arrangers in Sweet Adelines and have written a book on arranging, currently being revised, which will be available for purchase on this site. In my professional life I’m an archivist at Georgetown University Law Center.

Commissioned Arrangements

My fee for commissioned arrangements is $300US. If the song is in the Hal Leonard ArrangeMe program’s Copyrighted Song List, the song has already received copyright clearance and no further fees will apply. Please note that arrangements of songs in the ArrangeMe Song List cannot be exclusive. Any arrangement of a song in the ArrangeMe list must be made available to all customers.

If the song isn’t in the ArrangeMe catalog, or is a medley (ArrangeMe doesn’t license medleys), or if your group wants exclusivity on the arrangement, you must request a custom license, specific to your group. You are responsible for any clearance fees in addition to my fee for arranging the song. The BHS can facilitate the application for a custom license.

Are you a songwriter with a song you want arranged in 4-part harmony, barbershop style? I’ve worked with many songwriters on original works and I’d be happy to discuss your project.
