COVID-19 Adaptable Band Resources

June 18, 2020

With the school year rapidly approaching many directors are having to reduce their ensemble sizes to help combat COVID-19. I along with many composers/arrangers around the world have started to adapt many of our works to flex/small ensembles. This effort is a massive undertaking by everyone and has challenged me creatively in many ways. Below is a list of works that are flex or small-ensemble along with links to purchase them. This list will continue to update as I finish adapting them.

(WIP) = Work in Progress

  • Forge – Grade 2.5 – S A T B with optional percussion
  • Curtain in the Sky – Grade 4 – SSAATTBB
  • Excelsior – Grade 2 – SATB with optional percussion and synthesizer choir
  • Milestones – Grade 3.5 – Symphonic Brass fanfare (3 Trumpets, 2-4 horns, 3 trombones, 1-2 euphoniums, 1-2 tubas) and percussion (1-2 players)

(WIP) Sonic Fanfare – Grade 4 – SAATTB with percussion (1-2 players)

And my most ambitious project yet…
(WIP)CELLphone – Grade 2-5. A cell style piece can be performed with electronics from an app on your phone! I will even be making the music available on the app so it can be paired easily with each electronic cue.

Along with these pieces, I will freely adapt any chamber piece on my website to fit your instrumentation when you purchase it. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me and I will help you out as much as I can. Let’s get through this together!
