Special offer"Melodious Instrumental Interludes Book I" complete book 1 for 2 flutes, guitar and/or piano
A set of 5 easy melodious pieces originally for use as “gap-fillers” in church services (many for the annual First Communion service for primary school children in Maria Alm, Austria), specifically written to be easily spontaneously lengthened / shortened to suit the occasion by choosing which sections to rplay/epeat, omit, or jump to at the last minute! Basic duration is given in the title (hence the unimaginative names). The collection contains full scores and all individual parts (2 flutes with guitar chords, guitar in notation to show plucking patterns, & optional piano part). You may well not need to print out the full 68 pages!). The shorter pieces are at the start of the collection.
Careful, you can't get the tunes out of your head!

Processional in B flat, arranged for trumpet & organ (Oct 2017)
Jesu Joy of man's desiring for trumpet and piano (Bach, arr. Peberdy) (Jun 2017)

Prince of Denmark (Clarke) and Trumpet Tune (Purcell) for trumpet and piano / organ
Simple single-page arrangements that I needed, useful to give trumpeters for weddings. Just the of "well-known bits"

Music for Canterbury Tales (1990)
Incidental music written to accompany "Canterbury Tales, Chaucer made modern". Krummhorns, recorders, tambourine, guitar, synthesiser, and 4 track recorder were used in its first performance at the Norbury Theatre, Droitwich, in Sept 1990. This is an old score, not great quality in its print, but may be of interest if you are planning to stage the play.

Longing

A Love song: Longing (September 2016) (piano solo)
Written for a composition competition run by the pianist William Howard for his "Love Songs Project" (http://www.williamhoward.co.uk/love-songs-project-1) in 2016. Although I didn't win, it was a very enjoyable piece to compose and play. Essentially a romantic, haunting theme and variations, but with a contrasting, slightly charged middle section. This piece has not yet had its first public performance, so you could have the premiere - please let me know if you do!
CasualSparkPianoSolo Casual Spark Rag, arranged for piano solo.
The rag proved popular, so I arranged it for 2 pianos and also did this arrangement, for solo piano. (Sept 2014)

Casual Spark Rag, for 2 accordions
My son, Caspar, was enjoying rags, so I wrote this one for him and his friend to play. For 2 Accordions (Caspar & Lukas)  Sept 2014

Black and White Rag (Botsford, Arr. Peberdy), arranged for accordion orchestra, Sept 2014
Having arranged this piece for 2 pianos, and the fact that my son plays in an accordion orchestra, this was a logical step to take. (Sept 2014)

The Entertainer (Joplin, Arr. Peberdy) arranged for accordion orchestra, Sept 2014
The same goes for this as with the Black and White Rag.

Christmas pieces Stille Nacht / Silent Night (Easy piano)
A simple arrangement of this Austrian carol for a piano pupil of mine. It seemed to be very playable for other pupils, so I've decided to share it here. With an optional 2nd piano part.

Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring piano solo (Bach arr. Peberdy) (June 2017)
