NEW IN 2022 - PIEKNOSC

This song is titled Pieknosc which translates to beauty in Polish, the origin of my last name. I got married in July 2021 and this song was considered to be what my wife would walk down the aisle to. We ended up choosing a different selection, but I still was happy with how the composition turned out, enjoy! Available at Sheet Music Plus or JW Pepper

Band Arrangements

Take Me Out to the Ball Game (2021)

Original date of publication: 1908, Music by Albert Von Tilzer, Lyrics by Jack Norworth, Arranged by Bryan Kujawa in 2021. This arrangement opens with a triumphant statement of the familiar melody, "For its one, two, three strikes you're out at the old ball game". The beginning features the upper woodwinds playing the less common first verse from the original version. Next the upper brass continues the phrase. The vamp at rehearsal mark E is an opportunity for someone to grab a microphone and announce to the audience that they are invited to sing along in the next section. Rehearsal F begins the chorus of, Take me out to the ball game. The clarinets and trumpets during this section are encouraged to lead the singing and/or create some fun choreography that mimics what you would see at a baseball game. Rehearsal mark J is a very fun final statement of the theme. Trumpets, clarinets, and altos take the lead while lower voices support with a funky bass line. The percussion part is notated as a starting point, however, if you have a talented drumset player, you could add them in here. Bassoon and Baritone T.C. are not in the score, but the individual parts are included. Play ball!

Pieknosc (2022)

Pieknosc translates to "beauty" in Polish, the origin of my last name. I got married in July 2021 and this song was considered to be what my wife would walk down the aisle to. We ended up choosing a different selection, but I still was happy with how the composition turned out. It is a joyous piece that begins with simple arpeggios that have a forward motion as guests enter. The theme then develops and gets faster and more involved as the wedding party begins to walk. It is most triumphant when the bride is walking down the aisle. When she reaches the end of her walk, with her father next to her, an important moment happens. He gives her away to the groom as the groom's parents watch nearby. They watch their children join together as one. I believe I have captured through music, the emotions that are felt and expressed in this moment. Key of D, 78 measures, 5 pages, advanced level.


Unexpected Beauty (2013)

Original composition for solo piano inspired by the image of a single flower growing on the side of a stone wall. The wall itself is rugged, misshapen, and grim, represented by the chromatic and dissonant themes. However, within this wall lies the flower, full of color, full of life, an unexpected beauty. 5 pages. Medium Advanced. 4 min 20 sec. Mostly in C Major with key changes to B Major, Ab Major, then back to C Major.
