Making all of this content takes a lot of energy and work! If you’re feeling generous and would like to support my projects, consider “buying me a coffee” or two or ten from the following website:


“Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing”
by Stevie Wonder
(SSAA w/ rhythm section)

In 2016’s movie Sing, Tori Kelly voiced the shy elephant, Meena, who finally conquers her stage fright by giving a rousing performance of Stevie Wonder’s hit song “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing.” Her powerful vocals coupled with a backing band that really grooves proves to be a standout moment in the film. This arrangement captures the same groove while adapting the melody to a treble ensemble. An early intermediate group could tackle this tune with only some difficulties as the melody is passed between voices, and there are only a few instances of full 4-part harmony. Your audience will love it!


“Don’t Start Now” by Dua Lipa
(SATB w/ divisi and rhythm section)

“Don’t Stop Now” is the first track off of Dua Lipa’s Grammy-award winning album “Future Nostalgia” which took home the title of Best Pop Vocal Album of 2021. This vocal jazz arrangement adds a layer of fresh harmonizations, rhythmic variations, and a beat to get your audience grooving. Opportunities to solo are available for both vocalists and instrumentalists. Featuring generally traditional vocal jazz harmonies, this chart is perfect for an advancing high school or college vocal ensemble! 


“Together” by Sia
(SSAA w/ divisi a cappella)

“Together,” by Sia, is a song featured in the 2020 musical film, Music. The film features Kate Hudson, Maddie Zeigler, and Leslie Odom Jr. Additionally, Sia is the film’s director.  This SSAA w/ divisi a cappella arrangement channels the energy and message of the original recording while adding subtle changes to build on its already positive themes.


“Killing Me Softly With His Song” by Fugees
(SSAA a cappella)

This arrangement of Roberta Flack’s “Killing Me Softly” is based on the 1996 cover by Fugees.


“Royals” by Lorde
(SATB w/ divisi a cappella)

This arrangement of Lorde’s 2013 hit song makes subtle use of reharmonization to stand out from other a cappella covers of the tune. In particular, the bridge gets a full makeover that will surely offer a fresh sense of newness for those listeners who remember the piece from its extensive radio play when it was first released.


“Love Yourself” by Justin Bieber
(SATB with rhythm section)

From Justin’s 2015 album Purpose, this arrangement colorfully reharmonizes much of the original tune while remaining (mostly) faithful to the form. There are opportunities for both a vocal solo and an improvised instrumental solo.


“Gotta Be This or That” by Sunny Skylar
(SATB with Rhythm Section)

This 1945 classic tune, made famous by Benny Goodman, features traditional 4-part harmony, an opportunity for a soloist, an improvised scat section, and a drum solo.


“But Not For Me” by George & Ira Gershwin
(SATB with solo guitar/piano)

Written for the 1930 musical Crazy Girl, this beautiful ballad could be performed accompanied or a cappella.


“The Star-Spangled Banner” by Francis Scott Key and John Stafford Smith
(SSAA a cappella)

This arrangement is set for treble voices and features fresh harmony on a classic piece. An SATB version is also available.


“Hold My Hand” by Jess Glynne
(SATB w/ divisi a cappella)

This arrangement is high-energy with explosive harmonies, and it features a powerful solo for one or two singers.


“Come Home” by OneRepublic
(SATB w/ divisi a cappella)

A chart inspired loosely by Imogen Heap’s Hide and Seek, this piece features a soloist/duet that is supported by the harmonic backings of the full ensemble.
