A Cappella, Choral, and Band Arrangements
I've been arranging music for more than 20 years - I've arranged for college a cappella, high school choir, high school band, and community chorus. All arrangements can be downloaded as .PDF files and many have parts recordings zipped with them as well. If there's an arrangement that looks interesting to you, but that isn't arranged for the goup you've got, feel free to reach out to see if I can make some easy edits to tailor it to your needs.
I created most of the arrangements here for groups I was working with. They wanted to perform a particular song so I arranged it for that group, knowing their strengths, weaknesses, and overall skill levels. Most of these were made for beginning and intermediate high school groups with limited lower voices. All were created for groups who wanted arrangements of songs that couldn't be found from major publishers.
I'm an independent musician and teacher! You could easily buy one of these, copy it, and never pay for it again. I'm asking you to support my work (and the work of other composers and arrangers) by purchasing an arrangement EACH time you perform it with a different group. Thanks for being honest and for supporting independent musicians!

SAB + Solo, HS Medium, A Cappella
Feature a strong pop soloist with repetitive triadic backgrounds. Add beat boxing for some flair or keep the stomping and clapping throughout the chart!
En Mi Viejo San Juan, Noel Estrada
SATB + Guitar, Medium
Not extremely difficult, but sounds great once your group learns it, this piece is in Spanish and is about someone who has left Puerto Rico, but longs to return.
From Now On (Greatest Showman), Benj Pasek and Justin Paul
SATB + Solo + Piano, Community Choir Medium
After the opening solo, this is an ensemble piece with fun, satisfying harmonies and even a hint of I'm Coming Out (Diana Ross) at the end. The piece builds in intensity towards the anthemic a cappella ending.
I Found, Josh Keogh, Amber Run
SATB A Cappella, 9 parts, Difficult
Difficult but accessible, this reimagining of the beautiful I Found by Amber Run is a full ensemble feature that could be done by a strong high school a cappella group or a larger college group.
