ADVANCING Artistry

 

ADVANCING Artistry will be devoted to arrangements at the INTERMEDIATE LEVEL of play; artistically done with the the goal of providing a truly artistic arrangement that is not at a yet professional level of play. 

These arrangements are written with the teen students in mind giving them music that will satisfy their maturing tastes. But, they are also written for adults desiring music that's well written, but not at a professional level.

It is my hope that these arrangements will provide you with great musical satisfaction.

SHEET MUSIC PLUS 

Copyrighted Music

 

Sheet Music PLUS, one of the major sheet music outlets on the world wide web has offered a great opportunity for its arrangers, like myself, by procuring copyrights for many popular copyrighted songs to apply our arranging skills.

 

I plan on making arrangement of many selections from old standards, popular songs and Broadway musicals for Sheet Music PLUS and I will also be displaying them here on this page.

Since these selections are copyrighted they must be purchased directly from the Sheet Music PLUS website and if you click on the  BLUE BUTTON icon you will be automatically directed to the exact page on the Sheet Music PLUS web site for purchase.

I hope you take advantage of these wonderful selections and find places to use them in your teaching repertoire, at recitals and auditions.

Fiddler on the Roof

from Fiddler on the Roof
This arrangement of Fiddler on the Roof is full of counterpoints and independence of parts.  The two main themes are tossed equally between both the right hand and the left hand. A great preparatory piece to the Bach Inventions.  A very fun challenge piece for an advancing intermediate student.  Super choice for larger Guild programs or recitals.

                  Norwegian Wood
                             This Bird Has Flown
This popular ballad from the Beatles album Rubber Soul is arranged for advancing intermediate piano students and adult amateurs.  The Beatles incorporated the sitar into this song, so in my arrangement I added some simulations that are guitar or sitar-like in the piano part.
 

I've added several performance notes into the manuscript to give you some ideas into how to perform this arrangement.  I think students and adults will find enjoyment is playing this arrangement of this Beatles favorite.

If I Were A Rich Man

from Fiddler on the Roof
This showstopping song from Fiddler on the Roof is a super choice for larger Guild programs or recitals.  It was written for the mid to late intermediate student.  There's a lot of technical variety and touches explored throughout the five page arrangement as it goes through the various episodes in the verses.  But most of all; it's great fun to play.

Yesterday
Lennon  -  McCartney

Yesterday is probably the quintessential ballad from the Lennon/McCartney collaboration.  I arranged this piece in a way that would appeal to the teen at the intermediate level or the adult amateur.  I can see it useful in anything from piano recitals, family gatherings or just plain personal enjoyment.

Baby Elephant Walk - Henry Mancini
 

Baby Elephant Walk by Henry Mancini is the popular theme song from the movie Hatari; a film about the dangerous job of those who captured wild animals for zoos.
 

I made this arrangement for the intermediate piano student. This arrangement is great for voicing and differentiating parts. This arrangement is different from many of my others in that I give many directives in the score as to dynamics and touch to help the student in their interpretation. Great piece for recitals and the great variety of musical and technical ideas found in the arrangement should make this a fine audition piece, too.   But, I think adults should find great enjoyment in playing this piece of Mancini Magic.
