Marching Band Arrangements

I'm pleased to make these arrangements available for purchase. I wrote all of these for the Penn State Blue Band, for whom I've been arranging since 2002.

To view scores and price list, please use contact form below. (Most charts are in the $250-$350 range)













  • All of these arrangements will require that the band director request and receive permission to arrange from the copyright administrators of each tune/piece. (I can help with this simple process.)

  • No scores or parts will be sent, and no invoices will be processed until I receive the signed permission documents from the director.

  • Fees for these permissions vary and will be the responsibility of the purchasing director.

  • The permission fee is in addition to the cost of the arrangements.



  • Wind score & parts in PDF

  • School name on title page of parts & score

  • Percussion not included

  • Customization available for additional fee
