I’m currently accepting commissions for ensembles of all skill levels for the 2020 calendar year and early 2021. My rates typically vary by duration, instrumentation, deadline, and use—a multi-movement piece for orchestra is more labor-intensive than a two-minute piece for two performers. That said, I enjoy working with students, ensembles, and educators, and I’m happy to explore options if you’re on a limited budget. For more information, contact me directly at: megan[dot]dejarnett[at]gmail[dot]com. We’ll talk more about your project and work to create the right piece for you.

Please note that due to demand and my own creative schedule, I require a six-month minimum period in which to create your piece. In extreme cases, exceptions may apply, but I’m making an effort this year to budget my time in a way that’s healthy for me.

A sampling of recent commissions:

“I love how Megan writes music like a blizzard, with all these delightful crunches in it.”

Dr. Alex Wilson, professor of trumpet at Grand Valley State University

“… a bright and welcome contrast.”

Paul Muller, writer, Sequenza 21

“Whether delicately sewn or boisterously uprooted, Megan’s creative practice consistently upturns a soil rich in expressive detail. Her capacity to nurture a tender, budding seed matches her wildest winds and quakes – forms and sonic eruptions emerge as outgrowths of clear trajectory. Megan prunes down to the articulation and masterfully landscapes entire forms.”

Cameron Robello, composer

“I highly recommend working with Megan!!! She’s fantastic!”

Jeremiah Jacks, director of bands at Spring View Middle School
