Robert Langenfeld


Robert Langenfeld (b. 1990, Nebraska) is an American composer.

Mr. 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. Most recently, his work Spark! was selected as the winner of the 2016 Claude T. Smith Memorial Composition Contest.

Langenfeld graduated from Northwest Missouri State University in May 2013 with a B.S. in computer science and a B.A. in music. He also studied composition under composer Steven Bryant.

Robert not only writes for the traditional performance media; 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 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.
