Welcome to my e-store! I have a limited variety of free and paid arrangements currently available. I am committed to creating and commissioning new music, and am also passionate about arranging pre-existing works for saxophone solo, quartet, and large ensemble. Feel free to peruse the current offerings, and check back periodically for new arrangements. Thanks for visiting!
My philosophy of arranging
In selecting works to arrange for saxophone, one of my primary concerns is whether the arrangement might bring something new and artistically interesting to the original work. What can the timbre of the saxophone, and each saxophone in particular, offer an already complete piece of music? As a performer, I understand the enormous range of musical possibilities the saxophone family has to offer, and so my answer to that question is: an enormous amount! I take a great deal of effort to combine saxophones in ways that complement each other, create varied colors, avoid excessive tuning and range difficulties, and account for balance when re-scoring lines from lighter-sounding instruments. My first goal is for every part to be interesting and playable. My second goal is to make the notation as legible as possible for modern performers. To that end, my arrangements provide clear stylistic markings suited specifically to saxophone, in order to avoid the ambiguity present in many older editions, aiding in the rehearsal process. Additionally, in all of my editions, you will find program and performance notes, adding context and making your life easier when creating your own programs. Saxophone ensemble arrangements are offered for ensembles with or without a sopranino. I invite your feedback, as well. Should my arrangements be updated over the course of multiple playings, I am happy to share updated versions at no extra charge.
