Arranging/transcription

John has arranged for big bands and smaller ensembles in a variety of styles. His work has been performed by Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra, Morgan Brothers Big Band, Leeds University Union Big Band, Tom Sharp Jazz Orchestra, King Groovy and many others.

Having worked at the leading notation software company Sibelius, and served as a copyist for the 9 to 5 UK Tour, John is able to offer good-quality copying and score-preparation services.

He also creates custom arrangements for amateur or school ensembles which may require unusual instrumentation or a careful balance of difficulty levels.
