Video Upload

At last, after long delays, the first recordings of the piano arrangements is finally up on YouTube!

“This is Berk” in particular took me two sessions and twenty something takes, but it all paid off in the end, even if it meant wearing my homemade Hallowe’en costume from last year in the middle of August.

School and marching band responsibilities have been keeping me busy since September. I’m hoping to finish editing “Romantic Flight” for upload next weekend. Also, I’ve been considering making new ensemble/band arrangements. Here are a few ideas I have at the moment:

01 This is Berk – Concert Band

08 Forbidden Friendship – String Quintet/Quartet (undecided)

10 See You Tomorrow – Marching Band

15 Romantic Flight – Wind Quintet/Wind Ensemble (undecided)

Further announcements to come, so certainly keep an eye out for those.

Anyways, enjoy and a happy Thanksgiving to those in Canada!

  1. A string quartet arrangement of Forbidden Friendship would be awesome! Keep up the good work! I love this soundtrack and your arrangements!

  2. Please make a string arrangement!!! I’ve searched everywhere for a quartet/quintet arrangement, but I couldn’t find any 😦
    But I found this awesome quartet+ 2 flute+ drum+ piano arrangement on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDqNgfTvbX4

    By the way, amazing job on transcribing all those soundtracks. I hope you continue to transcribe more music, best of luck πŸ˜€

    – D.D.

    • Thanks, I most certainly will! Right now I’m working to transcribe as many new tracks in advance as possible so that I can work on the various arrangements while uploading the piano scores regularly. And thanks for sharing the video as well. Sadly I can’t dig too much into other people’s arrangements, for fear that I’d end up writing something similar and be accused of plagiarism. Either way, I’m looking forward to working on the string arrangement!

  3. It would be absolutely amazing if you could do a ensemble piece for “This is Berk”. I have been scouring the internet for ages and have come up with naught… I’m hoping perform it for my school concert…

  4. Great job on these arrangements! Thank you so much for sharing them – I’m having a fun time learning Forbidden Friendship. I’d also be interested to hear about your plans for developing any ensemble arrangements. Thanks again!

  5. I play trumpet and I recently found your work. I love it. I’ve been thinking of making an additional arrangement off of yours for See You Tomorrow, but as a trumpet and flute duet, but I haven’t yet, because I still need to buy the music. I’m also super supportive of you making a full concert band ensemble piece of This Is Berk, that would be the best thing ever to me. I know how difficult it is to be a hard-working individual who doesn’t get much appreciation for their work so I’m not going to poke you about it, but please do know that if you ever made it I’d love it. I think you’re my new favorite arranger! =D

    • Thanks for your support, Megan! I toyed with the idea of a concert band arrangement of This is Berk for a bit way back, but it didn’t come to fruition because I’m less experienced managing anything beyond 2-3 instruments. That being said, I believe there has been a few HtTYD concert band arrangements made over the years, both by sheet music publishers and amateurs; hopefully a search on YouTube or MuseScore will turn up some results.
