You need that big orchestra sound. I make it. Let's jam.
While orchestral music is my forte, I compose and record music of all genres in my own studio, according to my clients' various needs. A classically trained pianist since 1st grade, I compose music for commercials, television, short and feature films, musicals, songs- whatever you're after. Bottom line: if you've got a project that needs music, I've got the keyboard, software and the know-how to write, record and deliver dynamic and engaging jingles, scores and soundscapes.

2 ReviewsEndorse Jeff Rosick
Jeff is a versatile musician, an awesome producer. He had a way of communicating your emotions through the colours of music like no other. Every sound he creates carry a feeling, and he masterfully composes them into a song that tell your story in all its glory. If you got a story to tell, Jeff will be your perfect producer.
Jeff was a very talented and professional composer to work with. He made changes that I requested with no hesitation. The subtle and accented parts that he added to my song took it from semi pro to definite pro. Just check out his credits and listen to his sample. Its a pretty easy choice. I plan to do a few more projects asap. Great job Jeff!
Interview with Jeff Rosick
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Triumphant, big, bold, rich, sensitive, dynamic
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: A piece I composed called "The Great Wild" marked a new chapter for me, as a composer. For so long, I've had so many personal music ideas growing in my head. Shortly after a heavy life event, I had my gut-check moment: "life is too short. What are you waiting for? Go make them real - ALL of them!" Since composing and producing "The Great Wild," my music software is never NOT turned on and open with a current project. This'll read a bit cheesy, but... our lives themselves are beautiful music. I figure that, with the time we have, we ought to share 'em as much as we can. Whether we work together, or not: good vibes to you on your journey.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A big band/orchestra duet for a man and woman to sing. Dialing in the lyrics, then diving in to recording.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Aside from live-recorded instruments (acoustic guitar, violin, clarinet, etc.), digital all the way - it makes for a faster and more efficient workflow. HOWEVER, if there's a sound that's just perfect - and can only be accomplished in analog - then analog it is.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is that we will find the song you're after, together.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That it's also my passion.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: "Can you make it sound like there's an orchestra playing in my song?" Answer: Yes.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I simply drag, drop, and splice pre-existing sound files.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is your deadline?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be excited to tell me about your song! The more I know about it, the better (and faster) we can manifest what you hear in your head and heart.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Kawaii baby grand piano, Sennheiser HD 280 PRO headphones, 256 GB iPod loaded with favorite songs and film scores (would say iPhone, in case of a signal to be rescued, but that's not the point of this question), solar charger for iPod, sunglasses
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started composing music professionally for local to international clients, in 2007. A few years later, I started scoring films. It's been a blast, and the creative projects keep coming. I love it.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Sara Watkins (singer, songwriter, fiddler). She has a stunningly beautiful crystal-clear voice that is so pure and warm.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If an element does not sound good to your ear, then lose it or find something better. Just because a tool, virtual instrument, effect, etc. might be hyped by marketing or sound effective in other works, doesn't mean you absolutely have to use it in yours, if it's just not working.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Orchestral covers/arrangements/additions, Film Scores
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Orchestral arrangements
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Time, attention, and great care. It's YOUR song, and it's my goal to make it sing beautifully.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: You give me a healthy explanation of what you're after, and I produce a first draft. From there, we refine using clear and thorough communication. One or two drafts later, we've arrived at the final draft.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: East West Studios Virtual Library, Logic Pro X, PreSonus Qutnum 2626 Interface, Roland Fantom X8 (keyboard), AT4040 (mic)
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: John Powell, Rachel Portman, Ralph Vaughn Williams, John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, Hans Zimmer
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Orchestral additions to songs, orchestral arrangements of existing songs, creation of orchestral songs from scratch/collaborator's concept
