After spending many years playing with orchestra as soloist and in chamber music recitals,  I decided to take matters in my own hands and share it writing some musically interesting charts. The present collection is the result. I began selling these arrangements in 1991 and in 2012  over 500 flutists and  ensembles all over the world are playing them, and they have become a valuable resource for any concert flute player. These arrangements are written to be performed by flute and orchestra, flute alone and flute and piano. Some are more complex and challenging than others, but most can be performed at jobs with minimal rehearsal. A little experimentation will tell you which ones work best in noisy venues and which require quiet. All of the arrangements and editions are digitally typeset in beautifully legible Sibelius-engraved format, and are available as printed sheet music or as digital PDF files which can be downloaded and printed on your computer.


Arrangements can be ordered individually, or as a complete set.
