About the Composer

Unlike other online music services, your original classical wedding music will be handcrafted by a living composer who holds a doctoral degree in musical composition from Boston’s New England Conservatory of Music–one of the finest music schools in America. Your music is guaranteed to be beautiful in the traditional classical style (a la Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn), the impressionistic style of Debussy, or other styles upon request. Samples are available here.

Part of the joy in assembling a wedding is selecting the perfect instrumental ensemble that will perform during the ceremony or reception. The sheet music you commission from Dr. Matthew McConnell is intended to be played by live performers.
