Over a busy 10-year period, James has arranged for almost every ensemble type, including orchestra, choir, big band, jazz combo, rock group and a wide range of hybrid ensembles. James' arrangements have been used by every level of group, from absolute beginners up to some of the UK's leading professional ensembles. He has a particular interest in writing for ensembles of mixed ability, and translating music from one genre to another.

James Brady Brass Series

Started in 2018, the James Brady Brass Series draws on James' 10+ years of brass playing and teaching, during which he has created a wide array of arrangements for learning and improving students. Each arrangement is designed to help students develop interesting musical vocabulary, as well as providing stimulating pieces for performances in a variety of formats. Many arrangements are available in multiple orchestrations, to suit the needs of different teachers and music directors. For the full catalogue, see https://bit.ly/smp_jb
