what instruments do you use?

My primary instruments are the violin, viola and cello, and I also utilize the piano, percussion, classical guitar, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, electric bass and synths


In a world of MIDI, I bring buoyancy and breath to my productions by prioritizing live instrumentation, never shying away from incorporating modern production elements to create a sound that’s both current and timeless

My ability to listen — whether that’s to your music, vision or intentions, I have a sharpened sense for how to best enhance and support whatever project I’m involved in

I’m passionate about every project I work on and will treat your project, be it small or large, with the same care and attention to detail that I would for my own music

What are your rates?

Because there are many variables when it comes to a project, it’s hard to give a number given the range of work I do. I work hard to tailor projects around a client’s budget and have many routes available to achieve their goals. As a freelancer, I’m able to offer specialty services, flexibility in schedules, and direct personal communication. For a custom quote, you can reach out to me directly at nwolkstein@gmail.com
