Arrangement and Composition

I can create arrangements and original compositions for you, your group or ensemble, your educational institution, company or creative project.

My degree is in composition and I have experience of arranging for all sizes of ensemble from soloists or small groups up to full wind bands and orchestra. I am happy to arrange for any combination of instruments and for any playing ability level. My arrangements have been played in the UK and oversees in places such as the USA, Germany and South Africa. My composition work has included varied projects such as writing sets of pieces for whole class lessons for a county music service, writing the music to a short film broadcast on BBC Wales, and writing the anthem for a primary school in Bedfordshire!

Why get me to write or arrange for you?

The beauty of a bespoke piece or arrangement is that I can tailor the music to suit your particular musical taste and requirements, and to show off your personal strengths as a player. Sometimes it can be difficult to find pre-existing sheet music of particular pieces for your instrument or group, and even then it might not be a suitable length or level. When you order a piece from me you can be sure that the end result will be exactly what you’re after.

I have now started uploading examples of my work to my YouTube channel (Amy’s Music Nook), which I will continue adding to on a regular basis. Below are some examples.

Here’s my arrangement of Don’t Start Now by Dua Lipa for clarinet quartet.
Here’s my arrangement of Juice by Lizzo for clarinet quintet.
A live concert recording of two movements from my piece Five Duets For Flute & Piano.
A live recording of my piece Little Wren, sung by Bath Abbey Melody Makers children’s choir.
A live concert recording of my piece Flying The Nest for clarinet quintet (version for mixed wind quintet also available).
A short piece I wrote for beginner-to-intermediate level solo piano called Deckchair Cat.
A live recording of an aria named Write What You Know. I wrote the music for this as part of a collaboration project (part of a WW2 commemoration event performed at St. Fagans Museum of History in Wales). Words by Tom Stewart.

Pricing

Pricing for arrangement and composition services is dependent on various factors such as the complexity of the project and the amount of time it will take me to complete it. Please get in touch for a quote, or to ask any questions!
