Paul Smith has been arranging music for ensembles for over twenty years! With a performing and playing experience that covers most orchestral instruments including brass and strings his knowledge of each instrument and the challenges faced at all levels have led to some very successful arrangements. Experience includes duos to full orchestras including the Give It A Go Orchestra which had players of both orchestral and non orchestral instruments performing together with a mixed ability from beginner to post grade 8!
Do note that many of the pieces have been performed by players of primary school age so should work with any ensemble ability. Music arrangements are available to order to your instrumentation requirements and abilities of the performers. Do let me know your requirements to receive a no obligation quote.
A music transcription service is also available using Sibelius and Finale music writing software. This is useful if you have an arrangement already and need an alternative key or sound files etc.
