The "One-tet" is an expandable arrangement going from one player (The 'One-tet') up to 12-20 players although, as long as you keep the balance right in the ensemble, you could have as many as you like?
Parts come in single instruments and some multiparts and in a variety of transpositions. The image on the right (below) shows the 4 basic parts in string quartet format. You can also see the different instruments and transpositions available to expand your ensemble below.
Click here or scroll down to see what is in each part.
If your players have the necessary ability the arrangements can also be played by a wind or brass quartet.
All of our scores and parts are printable in Portrait format for distribution by default.
If you need parts in either portrait or landscape format for viewing on tablets please see the information on our Tablet Support page. Don't just share the master download with all the parts as your licence does not permit you to do so. (see Licensing
This is the principal melody part although the other parts may take the melody from time to time. When this happens, the melody will be cued or be the same as the first time if the melody needs support.
This is a harmony part that usually adopts the same rhythm as the principal melody part. It may sometimes double the melody or have the lead in its own right.
This is a tenor register harmony part. It will be heard on cello in the backing tracks but is playable with occasional octave ossias on the instruments below.
It may also have the melody from time to time.
The bass part. This even has the melody occasionally.
These make the arrangement more interesting but the arrangements all work without them.
Below is an example of the short score for a 'One-tet' arrangement it has the four principle parts on it including any ossias for that part.
For clarity, the rhythm parts are not shown on this score view.

I earn my living as a musician so I am asking you, please, not to copy my music and distribute it for free.
The internet has become a place of 'free stuff' to such an extent that no-one really seems to care as no-one will ever know. But you will know.
As is also the way of things, these arrangements are inexpensive compared with the many hours that go into preparing them, as they will hopefully reach many people. So, if you do publish any performance or version of my work on any platform such as MySpace, YouTube, Facebook, Google+, etc. you do need to credit me as the composer and, if possible provide a link to my site.
Thank you and happy music-making
Essentially your licence enables to you to print and distribute the parts to your group of musicians. If you want to use Tablets or similar electronic devices please see out Tablet Support page.
Your download will come with your name and email address on it so if you do share it electronically everyone will know who it came from. So, when you buy an arrangement, please make sure you use an email account that all of your band already know as it will be printed on every copy along with a unique identifier.
You can print as many copies of the music as you wish. All I ask is that you distribute them to your group and not put sets in a library or any public sharing or borrowing facility.
As above, I ask that you only share the arrangements in paper form to your immediate circle of musicians. Again, if you want to use Tablets or similar electronic devices please see out Tablet Support page.
