Horn Charts

$10 Single staff "Master Horn Charts," concert and transposed into Bb, Eb and bass clef. (pdf format)

After years of both playing gigs and sending bands out for gigs, I came upon the idea of Master Horn Charts. The size of the horn sections I both played in and hired varied from gig to gig, or more accurately, from clients' budget to clients' budget. With Master Horn Charts, the size of the horn section can freely change. Anything from 1 horn to big band can play the same horn parts.

The most common tunes played at all types of gigs.
Both single notes and harmony as needed. Sometimes string and "ooh & ahs" background vocal lines have been added if the horns don't have a lot to play.
Lyric cues at the beginning of each section.

Cut The Cake Example

Rhythm transcriptions available.
Signed Sealed Delivered Example

Transcribing rate for typical pop/r&b song is $30 for 3 horns.
