Amazing cellist and singer Jami Sieber and I will be performing a series of concerts in the PNW this October. Concerts are posted on the Concerts and Events page.   As of now, we will be performing at Vashon, Portland, OR, Eugene, OR, Seattle, Bainbridge Island, Snohomish, Bellingham, Whidbey Island and Port Townsend.  These shows usually sell out fast, so get your tickets NOW!

Tingstad & Rumbel will be performing our annual Holiday Shows this November/December - Yakima, Bellevue, Olympia, Snohomish, Mt. Vernon, Fox Island and Langley so far. Please get your tickets early for these as well!  Also January 2017 we'll be performing in California at a variety of venues TBD!   

I'm recording and notating some incredible songs for my dear friend/singer songwriter Susan Osborn.  So my Sibelius lead sheet chops are getting a bit better!  Really fun project!

I finished my studio work for a wonderful singer, Sophia Engkvist, from the Olympic Peninsula.  She is working with my long time friend and talented producer/engineer Jeremy Cayes whose studio is in the Sequim area.  

I finished recording parts for an upcoming release by Catherine Marie Charlton, pianist/composer from the Brandywine, PA area. Her project has afforded me the great opportunity to work with former fellow Recording Academy Trustee and renowned producer Phil Nicolo from Philadelphia.   

The music consult business continues to presents unique and varied discussions with each client.  Challenging times are demanding fascinating and creative solutions.  I really enjoy these one on ones.

NEWS -  I'm very pleased to announce and encourage your support for my young friend Darius Ghanat's new track and fund raiser for the Brad Cohen Tourette Foundation, that I am featured on. So happy for Darius who has worked extremely hard to create this project.   A very talented musician, he is homebound due to Tourette's and the treatments for it.  Please support him on this!   Here's the link: !  I invite you to share this info too!  Thanks so much!  Congratulations Darius!


Darius discovered Brad Cohen's book "Front of the Class: How Tourette Syndrome Made Me the Teacher I Never Had" and was so inspired by Brad's story of strength and perseverance, that Brad became one of his heroes.  Darius too, wanted to make a difference in the lives of those with Tourette Syndrome, so he is now raising awareness through his music with the "Tour de Ettes" project.  All proceeds from this song will be donated to the Brad Cohen Tourette Foundation to support the socialization, achievement, and education of those with Tourette Syndrome.


SURPRISE & WONDER -- These delightful workshops are a huge hit at elementary schools both public and private as well as community centers and libraries.  

OBOE/ENGLISH HORN/OCARINA & COMPOSITION SESSION WORK -- Would you love to have the sound of my instruments on your next release?  Perhaps you would like to commission an original piece?  I am available for hire and can record at my studio.  It's a great way to get exceptional professional playing or a beautiful new original piece on your recording. 

MUSIC BUSINESS CONSULTS --  So many musicians have questions about recording, performing, practicing etc.. and I offer consults via Skype, by phone or in person.  "For years colleagues have called upon me for help with their music careers due to my networking, marketing, and creative experience." 

OCARINA/OBOE/ENGLISH HORN LESSONS -- I am also available in person and/or online via Skype!  This is a great way to get pointers on technique, practicing, improvising, recording, performing and musicianship.

THANKS for Supporting Live and Recorded Music!  Gratefully,  Nancy
