As an interactive educational service to aspiring composers /arrangers, Phil will answer questions regarding jazz composition and arranging that are submitted. Questions about string writing and full orchestral scoring are welcome as well.

Please keep the subjects related to a specific question or problem per email.

All I ask is we keep all the questions serious ones related to the music.

Please email Phil at and feel free to attach a SHORT Finale 2003 or EPF sketch files to illustrate what you're working on.

Answers will be posted on this page soon.

Let's hear from you!
