Composer picBorn and raised in Nebraska, Robert Langenfeld found a love for music earlier in his childhood. His love for music when he was young led to him to eventually compose his first piece when he was only 12. Since then Robert’s music has won numerous honors and awards including several commissions. As an active composer and arranger in the Midwest, Robert’s music has been published through JPM Music out of St. Louis. His style of composing has been described as rich harmonies against dramatic backdrops of sounds and colors. Currently, Robert is studying composition under composer Steven Bryant.

Robert not only writes for the traditional performance mediums, he also is an active film scorer, having scored for over a dozen independent films. Along with this Robert is an active drill writer for the midwest area. He regularly consults with marching band programs and designs their drill for their competition season.

In 2012, Robert founded his own publishing company RLCompositions. The goal was to provide musicians, directors, and ensembles better access to his music. This also allowed Robert to provide better insights into his composing and to also start building educational materials for aspiring composers as well. You can learn more by visiting
