What’s New?

December has been an amazingly busy month for me with the launch of the site, the Sing-Off finale, and my move to a brand new apartment! I did some arranging work for 8 Beat Measure from RIT, a super cool, top secret project for my old group
Ithacappella, and even some instrumental mixing for one of the stars of the […]

Welcome to the new website! It’s shiny and new and slowly expanding with content being added all the time. First, let me introduce myself:

Who is this guy?

My name is Robert Dietz and I’m a singer, songwriter, a cappella arranger, choral composer, music critic, vocal percussionist, blogger, and sound editor (not necessarily in that order). I grew up in a small […]
