Song Arrangements

My goal is to make searching for arrangements as easy as possible. If the arrangement is part of the BHS or SAI catalogs, the link back to the catalog is provided. Arranger websites are also provided where applicable.

The list of arrangements will be constantly growing. It will never be static or finished!

If you are an arranger and would like your arrangements to be included in the list, please contact me via the Contact Us page.

There are three ways to search for an arrangement:

  • Browse List of Songs -- Select a Song from the list, click the "Get Arrangements" button.
    To make searching easier, you may reduce the list of songs in the box, by entering the full or partial song name in the search box. Click the "Refine the list" button, select the song you want, then click the "Get Arrangements" button.
  • List by Arranger -- Use the drop-down list to select an arranger, then click the "Get Arrangements" button.
  • Search by Type -- Use the drop-down lists to select the type of arrangements you want to see displayed, then click the "Get Arrangements" button.

The list of arrangements will include a variety of information depending on the information that was available.

Please note** If an arrangement is listed as contestable, please verify with the arranger before using the song in contest.
