Anyone Who Would Like To Create An Arrangement For Me Click Here


Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone:) TheBandGeek here. Two quick things. First off, I just released my first composition here (http://www.youngcomposers.com/music/listen/7662/dont-stop-believin-saxophone-quartet/). Second of all, I need all your amazing talents and brains to help me out. As a composer, I find it hard to arrange, although arranging contains a lot of the same elements as composition. See, I've got this school talent show coming up, and my friends and I were thinking of performing. Of course, they come to me to get the music:) So, I would basically need a pop medley of sorts. Comment below if you're available to help me out, and I'll give you more info, such as what songs to use and how it should be structured. Thank you so much guys. This is a lot to ask for, but it would be amazing if one of you amazing peeps could help me. Thanks!(For like the millionth time:P)

P.S. Yes. I'm just that desperate that I went all the way up to the fonts bar and bolded this:P

Wow, thanks for the quick response! Anyway, I am very excited about this. It would be used in a talent show, like I said before, if your okay with that. I've actually attempted this numerous times, and I still haven't been able to make it work! Yeah, I'm pretty bad at medley's. So, here's what I was thinking. If you could, would you be able to do it for 2 Alto Saxophones(Duet), and 4 songs, maybe like 30-45 seconds of each one? The ideal structure would be the 4 songs and then a really nice cool conclusion kind of combining all four songs into one, while still creating a new melody. I know it sounds complicated, but just do what you think is best, and then I'll let you know. My guess though, is based on your works, that it will turn out great. As for the four songs, I would  say Wake Me Up(Avicii), Honey I'm Good(Andy Grammer), Worth It (Fifth Harmony), Safe and Sound (Capital Cities). Again, I trust you that you will do an amazing job if you decide to do this for me. Beside the songs, the most important thing to know is that this will be played at a school in a competition, so it should be fun, entertaining, cool, high energy, etc. Thank you SO MUCH if you decide to make this for me. I am super excited to see the results.

P.S. The songs can be in any order. That's just the order I typed them in. But put them in an order so that it starts off strong, and ends stronger!

A few questions:

How good are you and your friend? I can go all out if you want. Maybe specify how high you can play so I don't make it too hard because Alto is a fun instrument to write for.

Are you sure you can only do a duet? Maybe there is somebody else that would play a Tenor or Bari part? It would sound more fullfilling but I can do it. It's just the chords will suffer. So let me know if that's a possibility or if it has to be two altos. again thats fine.Let me know.

Hey:) My friend and I are pretty good. I mean, obviously nothing with 16th notes at 200 bpm, but we can play pretty well. I can play third octave F and F# if needed. My friend can play high D at most. Although we can't add another person, feel free to add in a bari part if needed, and maybe we can play around with all three parts.

Thanks Again! Don't worry if you can't do it.

Pick a popular song. Shouldn't be hard to find sheets/tabs/midis for a popular song. From there you can easily arrange your song. Arranging is an excelent exercise for composers and i highly encourage you to do it yourself. With or without a talent show.

Otherwise, don't expect people to do things for you for free. I see a lot of people out there saying "if its free then more people will know me and i will get recognition!" but that is really not how it works. You will be full of work to do without any rewards whatsoever. (in short, its the same thing U238 said in a less U238ish way)

 

Judging by the arrangement you linked, you seem very well capable. So why are you still reading this? ;)
