Architectural Consulting for Music Buildings and halls

I consult for architectural firms who are designing new music buildings for college campuses, and also music halls. My over thirty year career as a composer, conductor, percussionist and educator, and as a music student at three different music schools that built new music buildings while I was matriculated (the Eastman School of Music, Indiana University, and Cornell University), has given me a unique perspective with regard to what details architectural firms should consider when building new buildings for music departments, or in local communities. Architects often get the big picture right, i.e, the design of the hall itself,  but to most musicians, it's the details that matter, and that's where I can be of service. I can ensure that your building or hall will not only look beautiful, but will function beautifully as well.

Rob is an incredible advisor and consultant for performance facilities. With his long experience as a performing musician, an educator, and producer for music performance he has experienced countless venues across the nation and internationally, in short - he has seen it all! He advised me and my colleagues in the many issues and opportunities in developing a sound program and design for a music education and performance facility. He opened our eyes to things only a musician would know, greatly adding to our knowledge base. I highly recommend him as a resource for ‘getting it right’ when designing a new concert hall or a music education facility.
