Arranging

3625At Orange Studio we have five arrangers here, we’ve all got music degrees with arranging majors, and between us we have experience arranging for pretty almost any ensemble at any level.

You can often find pre-existing arrangements at pretty good prices at sites such as jwpepper.com – however, when you can’t find what you need – why not give us a call? We can arrange for those uncommon instrumentations (your jazz band that has a violin and a french horn), or mixed levels (your jazz band that has a trumpet that is playing at a professional level and a trombone player that began lessons yesterday) or for when you want to be a bit different (such as when your string ensemble wants to play Lady Gaga… which we have also had before).

We are comfortable doing brand new arrangements that are really original and different, and we are also comfortable doing arrangement in the orchestration sense – that is of course where you say “I want it to be like this existing arrangement – just make it work for my instrumentation”.

As well as arranging for school ensembles, we also arrange for professional classical, jazz and rock ensembles for albums, singles, jingles, films, concerts and television shows.

Here are some things we’ve arranged that you can listen to…
