Robert Nowak is proud to be a Sibelius Artist.

What's New... recently contacted Bob about his long career in Music Preparation. These folks do a fine job in highlighting the many career paths that exist in the field of music. The site is particularly valuable for students as well as those looking for a new direction. You can read his interview here

Bob is also working on a musical about a well known American author and already has completed several recording sessions as part of the project. Stay tuned for more...

Bob orchestrated William Perry's Music for Great Films of the Silent Era: Part II, now available on Naxos. Once again, Paul Phillips conducts the remarkable RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and old friend Michael Chertock lends his formidable piano skills. Featured are mezzo-soprano Wallis Giunta; baritone John Brancy; Tim Hutchins, principal flute with Orchestre symphonique de Montréal; and Nick Byrne, trombonist with Syndey Symphony Orchestra -- but on this recording Nick is performing on the ophicleide. Yes, the ophicleide!


Robert Nowak's orchestrations, arrangements and compositions have been preformed by artists, bands and orchestras in nearly every field of music — from theater to symphony, from jazz to sacred music. He has prepared music for many of the world's renown artists including Pulitzer Prize winners Melinda Wagner and Wynton Marsalis.

Clients rely on our high professional standards of accuracy, meeting deadlines and completing projects at or under budget. We understand the specialized requirements of the arts and entertainment iindustry...the particular needs of a Broadway show, a film scoring session, a touring band or a symphony orchestra.

After 30 years in New York City we've decided to move everything to my home office in Western New York. We will continue to serve the Arts and Entertainment Industry, but in a more efficient manner.

We will happily continue the good relationships with our wonderful clients, colleagues and suppliers, and look forward to welcoming new clients, providing them with the finest in professional music preparation services.

I also want to acknowledge our many wonderful years at Kaufman Astoria Studios The historic movie studio, home to Sesame Street, Nurse Jackie, Orange Is The New Black and a variety of other TV and film productions, was and still is a great environment. We were surrounded by individuals and businesses of the entertainment industry — film, television and recording — as well as by state-of-the-art facilities. All the best to you!
