How it Works
The innovative process of Appreciative Inquiry (AI) guides the creation of your one-of-a-kind instrumental composition. An inspiring and clarifying appreciative interview draws out what is best and most meaningful for the subject you have in mind. Together, you and Mark envision the final work, including musical styles and arrangements. The investment of 1-2 hours of your time results in a clear and powerful shared vision for your piece.
Combining his talents as an accomplished composer with your completed interview, Mark creates original music that captures the essence of your thoughts, your feelings, your story. His compositional ability is as varied as his vast performance repertoire of songs in styles from Ragtime to Rock and everything in between, allowing him to tailor the music for your composition. Through a review a draft recording, you and Mark will finalize your desires together. The final production is then completed by Mark, including a professional recording.
