MODERN AMERICAN BAND MUSIC

 

 

 

New Concert Band Works from the Golden Era of American Music.

Presented here are arrangements derived from the best of Twentieth Century American music. These works, many long forgotten or overlooked, have recently been brought into the Concert Band setting for modern audiences to enjoy.

Please note, this serves largely as a reference resource. Most of this music is not for sale or rent, however qualified music directors with an interest in performing my arrangements may feel free to contact me in seeking performance materials and determining which works might require permission from the registered copyright holders.
