Custom Arrangements

While I have had many arrangements commissioned by top quartets and choruses, I love working with all groups. If you think you might like to have an arrangement done especially for you, read on.

Tell me something about your quartet or chorus. For example:

  • What are your voice ranges, strengths and weaknesses?
  • Do you love Dixie songs and hate Irish ones, or vice versa?
  • What is your group’s personality or image?
  • Do your audiences prefer big-city slickness or more home-spun tunes?
  • Are you older, younger or a mix?
  • Do you like comedy numbers?
  • Do you have a good solo voice—or four of them—in your group, or are solos not for you?
  • What kinds of songs are you looking for to make your repertoire really sparkle, or to give you just the right set for contest?

The more you can tell me, the easier it is to help you choose the songs that are just right for you.

My fee varies with level of difficulty (or sometimes fun!), with medleys and other more involved songs higher, and simple ditties lower. Copyright clearance for new arrangements is variable:

  • There is no charge for songs in the public domain.
  • You would order songs listed on Sheet Music Plus, which run $1.99–$4.50 per copy , yourself. I will give you a link to get you started on this straightforward process.
  • All other songs will need to be cleared by you though the very helpful Janice Bane at Harmony Hall.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.
