Hey, I'm Jesse Bender. I first started composing in the eighth grade, though when I look at those attempts now it's a little embarrassing. But I learned through mistakes and today I thoroughly enjoy arranging and composing, especially for wind ensemble, jazz band, or brass quintet, since it is with those instrumentations that I have the most experience. I've arranged over 50 songs and written three or four originals (including my high school's fight song). They aren't all jaw-droppers, but they all work. Most of them will stretch each player in some way. Take a look at my scores below (currently they are all arrangements for brass quintet, except for the wedding processional). Even if you don't purchase anything, I really appreciate reviews of my work. Enjoy!
Note - you can also hear demo recordings I made of some of my arrangements that I have not posted on this site: Pirates of the Caribbean (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrKjb3vTHdg), and The Thunderer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFCZdryTEow).
