Testimonials

   "Over the past couple of decades our company has created something like 6,000 television commercials, but I've rarely if ever commissioned custom music. We always assumed the process would be too slow, too complicated... and far too expensive. When we absolutely had to go that route on a recent      project     , Dave LaGrande came to the rescue, composing, arranging, and orchestrating the tracks. He was lightning fast, affordable, and most importantly he was able to deliver exactly what we needed."    Todd Terry Creative Director Fantastic Plastic Entertainment, Inc.

   “I had the pleasure of working with Dave on a pro-bono      project      that involved some custom music. Dave approached the project as if it was his own and gave great input and quality work towards the project. I look forward to working with a Dave again in the future and would recommend him highly for any custom music creation!”      Bobby Marko Executive Director  Nashville Filmmakers Guild
