Q: How does this work?

A: We meet, either on Skype or in person, and you tell me your story. What you are looking for from your music, what you want it to say about you and your life together. Decide what pieces you wish composed for you, and what instruments or sounds you wish them to contain. I send you a proposal based on what we've spoken about and once you sign off on it, I start the composing process. I may in the midst of it, contact you for feedback, or other notes, but in the end should have everything I need from our first consultation. Then, time alotted, I have the finished pieces to you 3 months prior to your wedding day!

Q: Why choose Music by Nate?

A: You will scarcely find the opportunity to have beautiful music written for you anywhere today. This is a unique opportunity.

Q: Why not use traditional music of Wagner, Mendelson, Bach and Mozart?
