For many years I have enjoyed producing arrangements of music for recorder from all eras (including early music, jazz and pop) for the various musical projects I have been involved with.
Having a little more time on my hands than usual over the past few months, I have finally realised a long term ambition and launched a publications website at www.ak-music.co.uk where you can find many of these pieces, available as instant PDF downloads and printed editions.
The arrangements are divided into three levels:
- Launch-Pad Series Fun arrangements for elementary recorder ensembles with optional bass parts. Titles include Blue Suede Shoes and The Peanut Vendor.
- Music-Makers Series Enjoyable and flexibly-sized arrangements for intermediate+ recorder ensembles, perfect for mid-level groups, recorder orchestras, mixed-ability and pop-up events. Titles include Wallace and Gromit Theme, The Pink Panther, With a Little Help from my Friends and early music arrangements. Supplied with optional transposed bass parts and alternative clefs for maximum convenience and accessibility.
- Small Ensemble Series Challenging and fun arrangements written for more experienced/one-to-a-part and professional ensembles. Titles include Lullaby of Birdland, Green Sleeves to a Ground, Autumn Leaves, The Teddy Bears’ Picnic and more.
A principle surrounding all the arrangements is very much sociability and musical enjoyment, ingredients I am sure we all feel we need at the moment!!
