I cannot provide preview copies for arrangements of copyrighted songs. SMP Press titles can be previewed online in their entirety — click on the song title, then select “Look Inside”. The first 2 pages of Noteflight titles can be previewed online. For BHS titles, the first page can be previewed online. For Sweet Adelines titles, the first page of some titles are available for preview. Select the online store, then search on my name. Select the “More Information” link.
Previews are available for me for public domain songs; contact me to request a preview copy.
A few titles in the arrangement list are not available for online purchase at this time; groups wishing to sing them must request a custom license through the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS). Licenses are specific to a particular group; each group must have its own license. There is no charge to request a license; clearance fees vary and are the responsibility of the purchaser. Clearance typically takes 30-60 days, but can be longer or shorter. Contact me for the paperwork to initiate a request.
Note to customers outside of North America. The BHS cannot clear unpublished arrangements of most songs for use outside of the US and Canada. However, you may seek permission to arrange and reproduction of copies either through the copyright society in your territory, your print agent, or contact the US copyright holder for assistance.

Are you a barbershopper with an original song that you’d like to hear in four-part harmony? I’ve worked with many songwriters on arrangements of their work and I’m available to work with you. Contact me to discuss your project; fees are negotiable.
