Custom Arrangements

Finding show music that fits your ensemble’s needs can often be a tedious and tiring process yielding unsatisfying results. In an effort to cater to the lowest common denominator, published arrangements are generic to the point that they fail to provide the detail and thought needed to create a effective and memorable performance. Let me help you fight that battle.

Visual Design

Drill that is musical, effective, and attainable is what I strive to put into each one of my visual designs. With over 14 years of experience writing drill I can offer the expertise to insure that your design is well staged, teachable and matches the abilities of your performers. You bring the ideas and together we will make it happen! 

Reviews from Band Directors around the United States

Craig CantrellCherokee Bluff High School, GA

I have worked with Chris over the past 10 years with two different schools of varying sizes and abilities. He is absolutely everything that you want in a professional music arranger and drill designer. He is on time and trustworthy. His work ethic is amazing and the results are outstanding. Chris always takes time to listen to your needs and makes them happen. He is creative and a master at designing creative shows that work well for students. He has perfected the level of challenge necessary to keep our students working hard while also allowing them to be successful.

The success we have had begins at the design stage. Chris builds our musical presentation to our band’s strengths. His drill design and staging helps convey the show concept. Without fail, year after year, Chris Creswell delivers a vehicle that speaks to our audiences musically and visually.
