Transcriptions, Arrangements, and Original Compositions

Vocal arrangements — In any genre and style—choral, jazz, pop, and swing—Dal segno will create arrangements that will make your ensemble shine.

Music transcription — For performers and directors in search of arrangements of unpublished or out-of-print music, Dal segno can provide accurate transcriptions from recordings.

Is there a particular performance of a piano piece that you love but you can’t find a high-quality published copy? Perhaps there’s a vocal arrangement that you’d love to perform but the published versions are too simplified (or too difficult) for your pianist or ensemble.

An accurate transcription can be created from a recording and adapted as needed to fit the technical level of your performers.

The opportunity to create new arrangements and compositions is always welcome. A few examples from my catalogue are featured in the sidebar.

Handful of Keys is an arrangrment for four hands of one of Fat’s Waller’s signature tunes.

Claire’s Waltz and Dave’s Lament are pieces composed as incidental music for the play Joint Attention which premiered in Chicago in 2013.

Goody, Goody was arranged for Three Hits and a Miss, one of many tunes I arranged for the group.

I’m Wishing was arranged for Rob Dorn’s solo album.

Knucklehead was written as title music for my series of Finale tutorial videos.
