BASIC Artistry


BASIC Artistry will be devoted to arrangements at the ELEMENTARY LEVEL of play; yet artistically done within the technical and musical limitations of students in their first years of study. 

These arrangements are written with the young student in mind.

They are also written for adults of more limited attainments but will satisfy their more adult tastes..

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


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 for a late elementary/early intermediate piano student. This arrangement gives the student some good musical challenges technically and rhythmically; as I try to make my arrangements of popular standards develop basic piano skills. This piece would be an attention getting recital piece.
