Arranger

Driven to provide an opportunity for young musicians to perform master works by celebrated composers, Mr. Schroeder has arranged and orchestrated a body of works for youth ensembles and orchestras.  The majority of his arrangements fall in the same key and stay true to the musical form of the original composition. This gives students and teachers the opportunity to listen to these great pieces and immediately play them using parts that are age appropriate.


Mr. Schroeder has composed and arranged music for numerous music organizations, including the Charles River Wind Ensemble, Harvard, MIT, the El Sistema Music Initiative at Conservatory Lab Charter School and Apregio Peru.
