The Freemantle Music Publishing Library
Original Compositions and Arrangements for:
***Elementary and Secondary Music Students
***College Students
***Professional Concert Artists
This is a library of downloadable Finale files.

The library is arranged by age level,
and composer.

There are solos, many trio sonatas,
etudes, and other chamber music
whose specific purpose is aid students
in study and practice.

There is a large sampling of
original compositions
by Richard Freeman-Toole,
but there are also
many arrangements by RFT
of classic literature,
including a lot of baroque music
with written-out embellishments
for the repeats,
and jazz music with written-out solos.

The arrangements give new life to old music,
and prepare the student for
learning how to add original embellishments
to simple melodic lines.

The plan is to entice more composers,
especially Alaskan composers,
to contribute to this site so that
it may become a place where
music teachers can find,
for their students,
material of a high artistic quality
that is both
age-appropriate and
concerned with Alaskan themes.

Freeman-Toole Beginner Music


Freeman-Toole--1st Note Jam for Beginning Band:
*****One note played together and in antiphonal alternation; quarter note, half note, and whole note conversation.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--Round One for Beginning Band:
*****Three note round, with drone; good for burning in the first three notes of a scale, and also breath control.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--Couplets for Beginning Band:
*****Exploration of 2-note cells in varying and alternating speeds.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--Triplets for Beginning Band:
*****A 3-note ostinato provides the background for a simple blues melody; features 2 against three polyrhythm.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--String Piece #1 for Beginning Strings:
*****A very easy imitative chorale; elegant harmony.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--Waltz for Beginning Strings:
*****A very easy solo violin part with elegant oom-pahs.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--First Day Blues:
*****A 3-note blues tune in the saxophone against a stop-time accompaniment.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--Second Day Blues:
*****A step forward from "First Day Blues"; a four-note melody presented in an expanded formal context; not strictly speaking a "blues."

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--Jingle Bell Blues:
*****A holiday foray into the world of improvisation; a simple head based on "Jingle Bells" with a background for blues solos.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--Bagpipe Twinkle: for Vln 1, Vln 2, Fl, Cl, Alto. Tpt, and Perc.
*****This piece is one of many of mine that offer more advanced music for some players and very remedial music for others. In this case the 1st violin part has some tricky rhythms, and some humorous quotes from the Pastoral Symphony, while the winds play half-note and whole note drones.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--The Moose and the Duck: for 2-part speech chorus
*****This piece depicts a humorous conversation between a moose and a duck; it gives the kids the opportunity to make funny noises, while learning how to count whole notes, half notes, quarter notes and eighth notes, and how to follow a conductor.

Freeman-Toole--Scale Doodles: for solo beginning band.
*****This is a scale builder with plenty of contrapuntal complications.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--Call and Response: for beginning band.
*****This is study in canons, while offering the slower kids a chance to play a repetitive antiphonal response.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--Panther Pride : for solo beginning band.
*****This is a solid jaZZ rock number suitable for beginning pep band performances

*****Score Download
Freeman-Toole--Arp Ops for string 4tet (5tet)
*****This is an arpeggio/rhythm etude with minimalist counterpoints

*****Score Download
Freeman-Toole--OsciBow for string 4tet (5tet)
*****This is a scale/rhythm etude with minimalist counterpoints

*****Score Download


Freeman-Toole--Afternoon Groove: for solo alto and beginning band.
*****My experience has taught me that there are usually one or two students in a public school music class who excel dramatically beyond the other kids. This piece is for such an alto sax player--it is basically a Detroit rock song with a very catchy, repetitive back-up part for the band.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--Jingle Ostinato: for jr high band.
*****This piece offers a jr high band the opportunity to nail an 8th note ostinato under an expansive melody, meanwhile Santa Claus jingles overhead.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--Country Tunes for small intermediate ensemble
*****This three-movement suite is a collection of Alaskan vignettes; it was written specifically to include a new crop of beginner 2nd violins to my more adavnced group. The wind parts are moderately simple, the 1st violin parts are challenging, and the 2nd violin parts are dirt simple. (The orchestration is not germane, and may be amplified to fit your current ensemble.)

Freeman-Toole--Pep Overture #3--Hip Shot
This piece is a tribute to my hours in the bleachers leading a pep band during basketball games. It was written based on the theory that, "If you can't beat 'em join 'em." There are some fingering challenges, but the rhythmic complications were met by the kids with enthusiasm and almost immediate success.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--We Three Kings
This Christmas carol is often jaZZified; my version includes off-handed quotes of other holiday tunes so I wouldn't have to arrange them too.

*****Score Download

Freeman-Toole--Around and Around for string orchestra:
*****A minimalist concept, i.e., plenty of counting, very easy, repetitive fingerwork; a good scale builder.

Freeman-Toole Baroque Music Arrangements

Most musicians nowadays are well aware that baroque music is meant to be freely embellished by the performer, especially in the case of repeated music. However, many classical musicians are still reticent to try making their own versions of music that cries out to be decorated with SOMETHING. These arrangements represent my personal take on baroque melodic embellishment, and they have very successfully been bringing my students' performances to life for some fifteen years.
