New Beatles Arrangements 

This week I've set myself a goal of arranging at least one new Beatles song for String Trio every day! So far, I finished a new version of With A Little Help From My Friends, which is already published to Sheetmusicplus.com

Cheerful song by the Beatles arranged for string trio...violin, viola and cello. Slightly challenging for amateurs, but great for gigs. Two measure intro, then into the song. And of course, comes with the Score & full Set of Parts.

Today I finished Something. The song, "Something", that is...

It will be up on Sheetmusicplus.com as soon as the staff there checks it out.

Score & Parts for Something, by the Beatles. Arrangement for violin, viola & cello. Great for parties, weddings, and just listening or gigs. Easy to read. Viola trades melody back and forth with violin. Page turns eliminated by keeping the song to two pages. Measure numbers at the beginning of each line. Dynamics and articulations suggested to make it sound more like the original. Some double stops, though not too hard.

MARCH FOR THE TRUTH 

  • Scientists need to be heard. They must march and we must march with them. 
  • People concerned for people who are trying to escape the horrors of war, poverty and ignorance must be heard. We must march with them. 
  • Women and people of all ethnicities and gender identities and races are human beings with feelings and needs and we must march with them. 

We must seek and reveal THE TRUTH. Then we can begin to heal. March!
I wrote and produced this in a funky rapping march style. But it might be good to exercise to also! Oh yah, I quoted the Declaration of Independence AND the Constitution of the United States! (educators beware...this is educational, but...maybe for students at least in 6th grade) Peace.

Used to be contemporary to be a 20th Century violinist. But now I'm a 21st Century musician. 

 I sang in choruses and played in bands, orchestras and jazz groups. 

As a pro, I've backed up people that I grew up listening to. My writing is flavored by my Jewish culture and the music of America... funk, rock, pop, rap, blues, bluegrass, country, honky tonk, classical music & jazz & R&B. My lyrics reflect current events both external and internal... my life as a musician and as a husband, a father and a teacher and a concerned citizen of the world & my personal battle between the life of a 'classical' musician in a Rock n Roll World.
