Song-Specific arrangement lessons:

In these lessons I go over the arrangements very slowly and in great closeup. The lessons are very informative and are designed not only to show what I do in any particular song, but also to show how I got there and how you can create your own, plus countless other tips and techniques. Each lesson may also go in depth into one or more unique topic that make a particular arrangement stand out. Most of the lessons are also beautifully produced in widescreen, the most recent in HD.
