Choirs and instrumental groups often need bespoke musical arrangements. For example, a choral arrangement of a standard work, but for a choir with three separate soprano parts, two altos, one tenor and no basses. Or an a cappella TTBB vocal arrangement of something by the Arctic Monkeys. Or an arrangement of the Wedding March for a clarinet, a guitar and a recorder. Or a wind band arrangement of the Grand March from Aida, but specially tweaked so that it's easy enough for beginners. ... You get the idea. I also provide private tuition (either in person or via Zoom to anywhere in the world) in piano, singing, music theory, aural, sight-reading... and many other things (including maths and various languages!) And I am very experienced with choirs and led a local community choir (both in person and via Zoom) until recently. So, if you need anything arranging, or want a teacher or a group singing leader, please email me. I’m Jocelyn Lavin, and my motto is “How hard can it be?”
