To the delight of audiences, Composer Henry Mollicone has improvised musical pieces during live concerts based on numbers guests have given him that have significance in their life. Now it possible for you to experience this fun, musical innovation by purchasing a Melody for Me composition to bring the joy of music to your special occasion.

Composer Henry Mollicone will create an original piece of music based upon a 5 to 7 digit number affiliated with a special occasion such as a wedding, anniversary or birth-date which is then transformed into a melody of musical notes.
