Composer: Brass Pieces


A Jig in the Ship for brass Quartet Score

This is a basic arrangement with no dynamics or other markings of the Piano piece.  I would be happy to update this and add marking etc.  As it is it should be a bit of fun to play.

Small Piece 2 for Brass Score

Small Piece 2 is a piano piece that I have transcribed for Brass Group, as it is small I have left it in transposed score rather than parts.

Small Piece for 3 Trumpets and Horns Score

this piece written a while ago is an exercise in scale patterns.  It was done as a small tribute to Arvo Paart, though he obviously does it better. The Score is non transposed:

Trumpet 1        Trumpet 2        Trumpet 3
