BIG NEWS!! My first concert band arrangement.

I was talking to my band teacher today, and he's giving me a major opportunity. I just started my spring break today, and I'm going to be working on a concert band arrangement over the break. When I get back from spring break, I'll submit it to him, and he'll judge how good it is. If he thinks it's good enough, the class will sightread the piece. This is my first concert band arrangement, so it''s pretty exciting! The piece I'll be arranging is called Ballad Of The Goddess, and it's from The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Also, I'm going to be asking my band teacher if he'd be willing to let me conduct this piece. I conducted along to my rough copy of the sheets earlier while playing an MIDI file of it, and it's pretty simple to do. Hopefully all goes in my favor. Also, I might try and upload a video of me conducting it if I'm able to.

Pumped Up Kicks almost finished

Posting to let you guys know I'm almost done arranging Pumped Up Kicks by Foster The People for Alto Sax. The actual sheets are finished, but I need to play them myself to decide if they need editing or not. I'll update you all on it soon.

Project SoundLife back up and running

I'm very happy to announce that Project SoundLife is now back up and running. I've recovered from my stroke for the most part, and I can now play my Alto Sax again. Finally. Now I will be making new arrangements again, and you might even get to see some composing action, and possibly some remixing!

Right now I'm working on some pretty popular songs, and you'll probably see me uploading them soon. I'll just have to find a place to host them since they aren't from Anime OST's or Video Game OST's. Yes, that's right. Ready for some Coldplay? Or would you rather hear something from Foster The People? How about some Maroon 5? Your likely to be getting all of those. I'll most likely be making a site though to host those sheets on. I'll update you all again when it's ready.

For the mean time, follow me on Twitter so you can get the instant upadte. @SaxAppeal96
