Perhaps you have a piece that you would like arranged for your beginning steel pan ensemble. I can do arrangements for any sized group (usually in four or five voices for the pans depending on your instrumentation) and include the ‘engine room’ instruments such as brake drums, congas, drum set, etc.

Arranging Philosophy

I take many things into consideration in an effort to craft an effective arrangement - including musical phrasing, general effects, instrumentation, difficulty, venue, practicality, purpose, etc., and I will make every effort to communicate effectively and musically with you to produce a product that serves both the music and your ensemble.  


I want to make it as easy as possible for you. Therefore, all custom arrangements include professional consultation and fast, free delivery of digital files – including a full score, individual parts, and a sound file!


Thank you again for visiting this page! If you do submit an inquiry regarding a custom arrangement, I will always respond to you in a timely manner, and you will always be treated with the utmost respect!
