ABOUT ME


BETH HALL

MUSIC EDITOR AND CHOREOGRAPHER

I bring a diverse background in music and dressage to the art of freestyle music editing and choreography design. I've designed freestyles for riders at all levels for twenty years. My advanced degree in music gives me the skill to edit music which is second to none.


I hold a BS in music from the University of Vermont and MM from UMass Amherst where I acted as Assistant Director of Bands on a full fellowship. I taught flute at the University of Mobile for a number of years. I've performed as soloist with many ensembles, including the Magnolia Chamber Orchestra and Baldwin Pops. I play flute with the Eastbay Quintet.


I studied dressage with Susan Blinks and Sarah Geikie during their tenures as Director of Riding at UMass. Other important trainers include "S" dressage judge, Arlene Rigdon, and Dutch trainer, Jos Sevriens. I'm a graduate of the USDF "L" judge education program and judged dressage shows for many years. At my Woodwind Farm, I bred and trained Swedish Warmblood horses. I taught dressage lessons, took horses in training, and hosted competitions.

ADD-ONS FOR CATALOG FREESTYLES

You can customize your catalog freestyle with any of the following services. Ask me for a PayPal invoice to cover music plus additional services. You'll find music only prices with every freestyle sample in "Music 1-4." For a more custom process with music edited to fit choreography video, see "Custom."

Gait Tempo Video Analysis

Send me a link to video of your horse and I'll determine gait tempos for you. I'll provide you with a list of catalog freestyles which can be successfully tempo-adjusted.

Training Level - Intermediare: $25

Grand Prix - $35

Adjust Music Tempos

You can provide me with your horse's gait tempos or I can determine tempos for you (see cost). I'll adjust music tempos to precisely fit your horse's gaits. The catalog freestyle you select must have tempos within adjustable range for the horse. 

Training Level - Intermediare: $40

Grand Prix - $50

Re-edit Music

Individual gait segments can be lengthened or shortened to your specifications or you can mix and match segments from different freestyles. The order of gait segments can be changed. Training-First Level riders should consider having the canter segment shortened. 

Lengthen or shorten: $30 per gait segment

Mix and match freestyles: $50

Change gait segment order: $50

Made-to-Order Choreography Plan

Choreography can be designed to match any catalog freestyle. I'll send you a questionnaire to tell me exactly how your horse needs to be presented in the program. I'll record a narration of your choreography with the music for you to use in practice and send you hand-drawn diagrams. Choreography will be designed once only! See cost below for revisions to the design.

Training Level - Intermediare: $225

Grand Prix: $325

Revisions to design: $30 per hour, credit card required

Stock Choreography Plans

I can email several choreography plans to you at no charge. First-Intermediare levels are available. Plan does not fit any particular freestyle, but gives you ideas for patterns. Diagrams are hand-drawn. You are responsible to know current requirements and make sure your final design is legal.

CUSTOM FREESTYLE DESIGN

Use my catalog music as a basis for custom designed freestyle. Make your selections from a list of catalog freestyles I provide after determining your horse's gait tempos. I'll edit each piece to perfectly match your choreography video. You can design and film your own choreography or I'll design it for you. If you want to hold down the cost, you can use one of my First-Intermediare stock choreography plans at no additional charge.


If you want me to design choreography, I'll send you a questionnaire to tell me how your horse needs to be presented. Patterns will be designed to fit your specifications. Hand-drawn diagrams are sent to you for approval. I make any requested changes, finalize the diagrams, and you film the choreography. 


At no extra charge, you'll be provided music video of your freestyle. Use this video to learn the freestyle. You'll receive 2 CDs plus thumb drive with digital music files, video file, and choreography PDF if applicable. 


See prices below. 50% deposit is required at time of booking. Ask me for a customized PayPal invoice.
