Music Directing

Musical director... R.J. Nestor deserves immense credit for his excellent work with the nine musicians, who made the production seem effortless.... You would have honestly thought an iPod was plugged in. — Dominion Post, July 29, 2010, review of WVPT's Carousel

I have music directed 70 musical theatre productions since 2000. I have music directed for West Virginia Public Theatre, Robert Morris University, and West Virginia University, among other companies and schools. I am comfortable working with professionals, with kindergartners, and with anyone in between.

I am based in Morgantown, West Virginia, and work here and in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. If you would like me to music direct a production, please contact me.
