Accompanist Woes

If you know me, you know that I thoroughly enjoy accompanying people. If you know me, you also know that I enjoy accompanying people on musical theatre pieces more than any other genre.

New Arrangements

I recently finished or am finishing some arrangements that have been simmering for a while. I'm hoping to get them published through Doug Olenik & Olenik Music Publishing, and I'll post that information when it becomes available.

-O Isis und Osiris for tuba & piano. Transposed. A good beginning tuba solo of the priest's aria from The Magic Flute.

-O Isis und Osiris for euphonium or F tuba & piano. Original key. A good beginning euphonium solo, and it works well on F tuba, too.

-La fille aux cheveux de lin for euphonium & piano. From Debussy's Preludes, Livre I (The Girl with the Flaxen Hair). A more advanced euphonium solo.
