Download (and unzip) the two Musescore files:

Unzip both files into your music folder

Open up both files in MuseScore so you can switch back and forth between them.

Sketch out a plan for your arrangement.

There are six 8 bar choruses in the arrangement.

Assign the 4 different melodies and harmony parts between the four instrumental parts:

  • Flute
  • Clarinet 1
  • Clarinet 2
  • Trumpet
