My arranging experience
goes back 40 years, covering virtually every style of music performance, including TV,
radio and recording sessions, West End and touring shows, major cabaret etc......
Although I have been a working musician, I have worked
solely as an arranger/copyist for the past 15 years.
Its a very familiar story............
| You are a cabaret singer, maybe
new to the profession, or perhaps a performer of many years
A keyboard player ( usually!) tells you your band charts are all wrong , hard to
read etc. etc. and surprise! surprise! .......he just happens to write arrangements.You
part with your money, only to find the next keyboard player ( or whatever) tells you your
parts are all wrong,hard to read etc. etc.
Why am I any different ?
I am a full-time
professional arranger, with everything to lose , should I supply "all wrong, hard to
read etc etc." arrangements.
My arrangements are
played in clubs, theatres, and function rooms all over the UK , USA , europe and
Australasia........my client list includes just about every major function band in London
this day and age, rehearsals are a luxury and more often than not, the first time a
musician sees your charts is when he turns over from the previous tune,
actually on the "gig".
For this reason they must be absolutely clear, with all the
decisions being taken by the arranger.
Its no use whatsoever expecting a keyboard-player to decide between 3 or 4
different lines to play.......I make that decision for him/her!
Where I supply front-line (brass/sax)
charts, if required, they are written so that the arrangement is playable by most line-ups
from just a sax or trumpet, right up to 2 tpts, tbne, and 3 saxes, or bigger if required.
arrangements are produced using Makemusic Finale 2014 ,the industry leader in Computer Music Notation.
|....or you run a successful
Your audiences are "crying out" for
Top 40 tunes, but most "pop" songs are around for such a short space of time,
paying through the nose for charts that you will only use for a couple of months, is uneconomic.
Now you CAN keep your repertoire up-to-date. At my prices, playing all
the latest chart hits becomes affordable !!!
All arrangements are supplied to you as Adobe PDF files via email., Each arrangement is produced specially for you........making the songs, in effect,
available in any key to suit you ( this does however cost just a few pounds
Why not contact me to discuss your
requirements, or if you like, just a chat!!
