Arrangements

Below is a list of all my current arrangements. Please contact me if you have any questions or need assistance in selecting music appropriate for your situation. Most of my arrangements have been sung by either my chorus or chapter quartets, so I am aware of how suitable they are for either size group. I have included a key at the bottom to help identify the type of song, and I hope this is helpful to you.

For singers’ convenience, I have provided learning track info whenever possible.   Although I may be unaware of additional learning tapes, I have indicated those arrangements for which known tracks are available:

KK – Kim Kraut (KimKraut.com), TW – Tim Waurick (timtracks.com), LW – Larry Wright (larrywrightmusic.com), Shayna – Shayna Atkinson (shaynasings@hotmail.com), LK – Lynda Keever (lyndakeever.com), JC -Jen Cooke (tracksbyjen.com), JO – Jo Oosterhoff (joanne.oosterhoff.info), and CS – Carolyn Schmidt.

Click on the hyperlinked titles to view the first page of the arrangement, and click on the ♫♫ link to hear a MIDI sound clip.

Don’t see what you want? Would you like a specific song arranged? I can be persuaded! Try my Custom Arrangement option.
