Flex Focus: Arrangements Designed to Adapt

flex focus: arrangements designed to adapt

In typical call-and-response fashion, we’ve heard the growing call for repertoire that can adapt to nontraditional ensembles. In response, we’ve been regularly adding new flexible content to our library that addresses these exact needs. This new, growing list of Flex titles offers original compositions, arrangements, and rescored favorites in a range of grade levels and styles from a variety of notable publishers. 

These pieces provide complete flexibility of instrumentation and can adapt to a range of ensemble sizes, from larger groups to as few as 4-5 players. Directors can customize pieces for:

  • Full band
  • String orchestra
  • Mix of band and string instruments
  • Mix of woodwind and percussion
  • Mix of brass and percussion
  • Percussion ensembles
  • Mixed chamber ensembles
  • Most like-instrument ensembles

To search for Flex titles, visit Find Music and search keywords “Flex,” “Flex Band,” or “Flex Ensemble,” or click here.
