O Come, O Come Emmanuel – Cinematic Worship Series (Advent)

I am a sucker for strings. Always have been. I married a violin player for goodness sake. Quite a number of years ago now at The People's Church (now Church of the City), I created what I simply called 'String Sunday'. This was a Sunday at Christmas where we brought in a string ensemble and [...]

Deck the Halls for Concert Band and/or Orchestra and Trumpet Trio

If you like Bugler's Holiday, then you may enjoy this trumpet trio version of Deck the Halls that I created in that style (double tonguing and festive!). I wanted to create an arrangement of Deck the Halls for trumpet trio in the style of Bugler’s Holiday BUT I wanted to make sure it was playable [...]

Where are we? Where did we repeat back to? Is that the bridge? Is this the last time? I'll admit it. It is 'possible' that I have A.D.D. Squirrel! So sometimes when we're in the middle of a song that repeats a decent amount, I find myself trying to make sure I remember where we [...]

Behind the Scenes – Retro Hymns 2 – The Horns!

Roger Breland has said for years that the horns were the icing on the cake.   I gotta be honest...I LOVE ICING!   My creative process for a song in Retro Hymns 2: I've picked the song. I've figured a 'general groove' idea. I went to my drummer friend Tom's studio and he created some [...]

So I've got my songs picked out. I've got arrangements figured out. I have a road map created. It gets really, really fun at this point. If you read this blog much, you'll see that I reference Lari Goss quite a bunch. I've said it before a bunch, but if you're new here...I moved to [...]

Behind the Scenes – Retro Hymns 2 – Arranging w/The Nashville Number System

  Clinton Roemer, Staedtler Mars Plastic Eraser, Judy Green Sheet Music That's my 'upbringing'. For a pretty large collection of folks, those words probably don't mean anything.
