Arranger


Peter can arrange music for all instruments (including voice) for performance or recording.  Whether it’s a new arrangement of an original, an original in a specific style or linking various songs.

 

Peter brings the wow factor to arrangements that will tickle people ears because they know the original song but love the new arrangement!


Arrangements Peter can do for you:

  • Song arrangements
  • Vocal arrangements
  • Backing vocal arrangements
  • String arrangements
  • Horn arrangements
  • Customised arrangements – this would be an arrangement in your key and style.
  • Backing tracks
  • Other arrangements

 

A few examples of arrangements:

  • An original song in a different style – for example giving a jazz classic an R&B feel
  • A cappella vocal arrangements – for individuals, groups or choirs.  For example Bob Dylan’s Blowing in the wind, a SATB arrangement Peter did for a choir in April 2010
  • Linking songs – this could be linking 2 or more separate songs with link interludes between them or bringing a chorus/verse/tune into a song to blend into a new song
  • Remixes – this is another type of a arrangement but specifically for original artists, producers and/or record labels
