Pony Music (And why I haven't posted in a while)

In case you all haven't noticed, I haven't posted in a while. Well, I had band camp, other marching band practices, and I've been busy arranging stuff for school. Anyways, I'd like to say that I'm working on arranging a bunch of stuff from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic right now. You can find my arrangement of Parasprite Polka over at Every Pony Sings I'll upload some more arrangements soon.

More updates!

AS you an see, I've changed the banner. This one uses images of the characters Kaoru and Sentaro, from my favorite anime Kids On The Slope.

As for arrangements, I've done some more. Here is a short list of what I've completed:

Coldplay - Charlie Brown (String Quartet)
Sherlock Holmes - Discombobulate (String Quartet)
Sherlock Holmes - Discombobulate (Piano)
Sherlock - The Game Is On (Piano)
Bleach - Houki Boshi (String Quartet)
Angel Beats! - The of the SSS (String Quartet)
Coldplay - Paradise (String Quartet)
One Republic - Secrets (String Quartet)

As you can see, I've been practicing with string quartets.

I'm also talking to a concert band about playing a few of my arrangements, as well as an orchestra from Brazil! Wish me luck!

Video Of An Arrangement

As I mentioned before, a friend of mine played my arrangement of My Soul, Your Beats! (From Angel Beats!) in his piano recital. He made a few mistakes, but overall he did a very nice job. Besides, it's an extremely hard piece. Just got around to posting the video for you guys, enjoy!

Lot's of news!!

If you're a fan of The Legend Of Zelda, you're in for a nice treat. I made a Piano arrangement of the Romance theme, and you can find it over on Josh Agarrado's site.

Also, I'm finished all of my projects for my Music Theory class, so I have more time to do more fun arrangements. In other words, more Zelda! Hah, I've just been wanting to do more Legend Of Zelda arrangements, and what better time than now? I am finishing up the school year, after all.

Do any of you like my arrangement of My Soul, Your Beats! from the anime series "Angel Beats!" It's a very hard Piano arrangement. If you haven't seen it yet, you can also find that over on Josh Agarrado's site, But that's beside the point. My best friend is an amazing Piano player, and he's playing my arrangement in his next Piano recital.

This is great for a few reasons:
1) I finally get to see one of my arrangements get performed. It's also getting recorded, so I might get to show you guys his performance if he gives me permission.
2) His Piano teacher loves the arrangement, and wants to meet me, the man who made it.
3) His Piano teacher works at a music store I'm currently trying to get hired at. If she puts in a good word about me, I might get the job.

Why is it so important I get a job? So I can purchase more tech and software to use for arranging. Also, I'd be able to purchase my own Alto Sax. Finally, I'd also be Able to purchase more anime, video games, and CD's. Why is the last part so important, you ask? Well, I need to be inspired, you see.

I'm working on some more arrangements that are from anime and video games, so I'll be able to upload these ones for you guys to check out. I'll be working on stuff from Zelda and Mega Man. So, I hope you like those types of arrangements. I'm also working on some nice arrangements from Pokémon.

Enjoy all these, and check back for updates. Until next time-

Looking For A Host

Needless to say, I'm looking for a place to host my arrangements. If any of you know of a place, please let me know immediately! No, it can not be a anime/ video game sheet site. I need a site to host arrangements of real songs by real artists.

Of course, if any of you run a sheet music site and are willing to host my sheets, please let me know! ^^

Current Project

I'm working on a little project for my Music Theory class. I have to arrange 3 more concert band arrangements. So far, I have arranged Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Fountain of Dreams, and Apologize (One Republic).

Today in class, I submitted my arrangement of Apologize, by One Republic. Needless to say, I got a good grade, as usual. Anyways, I have to back and make some minor edits to it first. I need to add more variety to the lower instrument parts. After I do this, I can upload it somewhere if anybody wants it.

Also, I'm doing 3 more concert band arrangements for my Music Theory Class. I'm thinking of doing Secrets by One Republic, Paradise, by Coldplay, and I'm not sure about the last one yet. I'll decide soon.
