Sally Greenaway | Australian composer and pianist.

'expressive, introspective and emotionally satisfying original compositions...' (


Sally is regularly commissioned to write new music and arrangements for ensembles.

Commissioning a new work

Imagine the opportunity of working with a living composer - the experience of hearing a commissioned work performed for the first time is thrilling and rewarding.

If you are thinking of commissioning a new work or arrangement for a specific event or a particular ensemble, why not contact me and we can discuss what type of piece you would like. I write scores with strong consideration to criteria such as the musical abilities of the performer(s), your ideas regarding theme/style/text, and the purpose/occasion.

The Commissioning fee varies depending on several factors, including length of piece, number of instrumental parts, and the deadline. I am willing work collaboratively with the musicians to create the piece, and to workshop the piece with the ensemble.

Make contact!
