Music for orchestras, bands, and ensembles -
specially arranged for the instruments that you have available
Do you have an orchestra, band or other ensemble, but find that you have an odd combination of
instruments and playing standards?
Music By Arrangement was formed in 1998 in order to provide a unique service for schools and local area
music centres. Our regularly updated catalogue includes original pieces, folk tunes and popular classics.
You simply select the pieces of music that you wish to play, and tell us the instruments and standards available.
We then provide a customised arrangement, at the correct level for your players.
A full backup and after-sales service is provided, including revisions and new parts.
We also supply a small range of ready printed sheet music for very
easy string, brass or recorder ensembles in standard instrumental combinations.
IMPORTANT CUSTOMER NOTICE: Please allow up to two weeks for us to process your order
and complete the arrangements. In practice it's usually a lot quicker than that, but you should allow plenty of time in case we are busy.

What a fantastic service! The orchestra performed Junior Jazz and Chloe's Calypso in assembly
last week and it went down very well. For a school which had no orchestra or choir
prior to this, it seems like a little miracle! Your arrangements are so approachable
and we find we can get one piece under our belt over one rehearsal so everyone feels good!
Thanks so much for Mystery Mansion and Junior Jazz which arrived today.
They are just brilliant!! I have never before had such an inspiring orchestra practice as I
had this Tuesday! Three of my guitarists thought that it would sound even better on
electric guitars and asked if they could bring in their electric guitars
next week. I'm not used to such enthusiasm.
Thank you for providing such approachable and inspiring music,
and so affordable!! I'd love to buy more straight away. "
