Because I work at an awesome church with awesome musicians, and we regularly utilize melodic instruments as part of our worship team, I have written hundreds of instrumental parts over the past several years. I don’t want these sitting on my computer for only us to use, so I’ve made them available here for folks who might have a willing viola player but no training in composition or orchestration. I often hear of music directors that have instrumentalists who want to play, but they just don’t know how to incorporate them in an effective and constructive way.
Here are a few of the parts I have written over the years. As you can see, the selection is limited to the instruments I regularly use (trumpet and strings), but parts could easily be adapted to other similarly pitched instruments as well. Trumpet parts are in Bb unless otherwise noted.
I hope these are a blessing to you and your team! If you do use them, there’s no charge and make as many copies as you’d like, but shoot me an email or leave a comment to let me know you used them.
