Hello and welcome!

This is the internet home of Ryan Fraley; composer, arranger, and producer. While I prepare for a major update, this site will be down for a bit. Well, OK, for a long while. In the meantime, please visit the links below for more information about my work:

Other projects I have contributed to recently:

Succeeding at the Piano®
This is a beautiful new series of piano method books written by Helen Marlais and published by The FJH Music Company. I have written nearly 100 string quartet arrangements that are found on the play-along CDs in each level. I have also arranged and produced hundreds of accompaniments tracks for student use.
Measures of Success®
An instrumental method book published by The FJH Music Company. Each volume has three compact discs of accompaniment material. I arranged, produced, and recorded hundreds of these tracks.

Jon Anderson
I've been working for vocalist Jon Anderson (from the band Yes) for several years as an arranger and orchestrator. I've done a handful of orchestra arrangements for live and recorded use.

Jon is also a guest on the recent CD by Wave Mechanics Union.

Jon's most recent CD, Survival and Other Stories, features one of my orchestral arrangements.

FJH Instrumental Catalog Recordings
I'm producing band, orchestra, and jazz recordings for FJH - dozens of titles per year. Bigger sessions are tracked at The Lodge in Indianapolis, smaller sessions at my studio.
Orchestra Mock-ups
In 2013, I'll be launching www.orchestra-mockups.com.
And lots of other fun stuff too. I'm very busy with the above projects, so I tend to be selective about other work I accept. (And feel lucky to be so). If you'd like to talk about commissioning a new work, an arrangement, or anything else, please contact me.
