Arranging

Music Arrangements:

Written music arrangements require a great deal of knowledge, experience and attention to detail. SMARTassmusic have 15 years experience arranging for a huge variety of clients from top selling chart acts, orchestras, cabaret singers and amateurs alike.
Having high quality musical arrangements can make or break a show and save you time and money.
Whether it’s live or in the studio you need to rely on the fact that your music has been produced to the highest degree of expertise so that not only does it sound good, but it’s clear and intelligently laid out. This gives you a better performance from your musicians as well as saving you expensive rehearsal or studio time.

Live

We’ve transcribed and arranged music for large orchestral concerts, cruise ship shows, cabaret shows, concerts, Jazz events and theatre. The video example above is an arrangement for rock band and full orchestra. (click to view the video).

Studio

Written arrangements for studio recordings need to be written slightly differently than live performance, with the advantages and limitations of recording in mind. In this example we arranged the Brass parts for the No1 hit “Here Come The Girls”

Theater

For this touring show we transcribed and arranged a full Big Band to be recorded in the studio
