Welcome to my website. If you're visiting for the first time, you proably want to know a little about me! I make music in a variety of settings including on stage, in the studio, on TV, in the club, and on paper! You may know me as the musical director and composer-pianist for the award-winning comedy shows Baby Wants Candy and Your Love, Our Musical. I work with dozens of other comedy shows, too, including Blank! The Musical, North Coast, and Vern, the long-running musical house team at the Peoples Improv Theater. You may also know me as a trombone player -- I do that too, and have toured the country as a sideman for a number of artists including Gordon Webster and Chris Norton, and with the legendary and retired swing dance band Sly Blue. Or maybe you know me from my teaching at Collegiate School, Princeton University, the American High School Theater Festival workshops, or at the Peoples Improv Theater, Magnet Theater and Upright Citizens Brigade Theater! However you know me, you came to the right place for the latest news, clips, and goofs!

Dan Reitz Studios™® is my full-service music studio in Queens where I compose, record, and create tracks for a ton of different types of projects. Music I've composed or put together for people has appeared in international ad campaigns, on podcasts, in audiobooks, and in theaters throughout the country. I've done the opening credits to a few webseries and if you listen carefully you might even hear my stuff underscoring your favorite radio show. My rates for production and composition are competitive. Here's a selection of things from things I've worked on recently:
Do you have a show, chorus, band, recording project, a cappella group or stage show in need of musical arrangements? I specialize in creating arrangements when specificity and musicality are important. Maybe you have a killer comedy song that needs to be put to paper? Or maybe you have an all-boys chorus and you can't find a good arrangement of that one pop song for your spring concert? Maybe your show has some boring arrangements that are dragging it down and you are at the point where you need the music to sound a bit fresher or more musical? Or maybe you want to add some sweet horn lines to your next recording? I've arranged for tons of settings: Touring musicals, comedy shows, a cappella groups, radio, Broadway cabarets, middle school groups, etc. and people tend to be very happy. My rates start around $150, depending on the scope of the project. Please get in touch!
Email and Facebook are the best ways to get in touch with me.
