I’m now a Published Arranger!

I’ve always had a passion for arranging music, but I put it on the back burner for many, many years.

Five days ago my daughter wanted to be able to play a song she loves from her favourite game: Waltzing in the Rain. we couldn’t readily find a good piano arrangement, so I wrote one for her that afternoon. Fortunately it’s a really beautiful song as it has been stuck in my head ever since. She’s been playing the piano arrangement daily, which is fabulous to hear. 😁

That prompted me to start dusting off my other arrangements, starting with one that I did digitise 5 years ago as I play it on the theatre organ every now and again. I wrote it when I was 10 years old! I performed it in the 1987 Yamaha Electone Festival and I was selected the Overall Junior Winner for the local heat and went on to my first State Final. It’s about an intermediate level, so I submitted it to Sheet Music Press, and it’s now been published. 🥳

A little more work and I had a piano arrangement as well, which has today also been accepted for publication. Both arrangements of “The Holy City” are now available for sale.

  • Organ version with lyrics
  • Piano version with lyrics

I’m not yet able to publish my arrangement of Waltzing in the Rain as Sheet Music Press doesn’t have copyright permissions, but if that changes then I will submit it as well.
