Welcome and thank you for visiting my blog! My aim is to provide people with free PDF sheet music for a large number of pieces performed by Maksim Mrvica over the years.
Most of the pieces on Maksim's
albums were arranged for him and are not publicly available which is why
I decided to create my own arrangements. These arrangements are very
close to the ones Maksim performs.
The technique I use to create
these arrangements is very time consuming takes a lot of effort. I
start by listening to a piece whilst sitting at the piano. Here I can
quickly establish the key and the time signature. Then I sit at the PC
with Sibelius and start writing down the notes whilst listening to the
music over and over with it slowed down. I'll repeat this until I'm
happy with the results. If there's a video available from a live
performance then I'll keep watching it on repeat. This helps provide a
more accurate score as, on a large number of recordings, the piano sound
is drowned out by the backing track. Some pieces I arrange, e.g.
Claudine, will take a coupe of hours. Others, e.g. Exodus will take a
few days to a week.
On this blog you will also find a number of
non Maksim pieces. Some of them are free, and others will cost no more
than £1.99. These are my own arrangements of popular music.
you do enjoy this blog then please donate. As stated above creating
these arrangements are very time consuming and do take a lot of effort.
