About MJM Works, LLC

MJM Works was founded by assistant high school band director, Manny Maldonado. Manny has composed and arranged hundreds of works for marching band since 1998. Manny's clients include Texas UIL State and Bands of America Regional and Grand Nationals finalists. He has arranged for groups of all sizes and understands how to score parts so that projection, pacing, and show design come to the forefront.

As an arranger and band director, Manny saw that many directors needed custom music, guard work, and drill for their programs, but that there was no source that they could rely on to find good writers.

MJM Works is a network of several writers and designers who have come together to offer quality custom shows at affordable prices. The designers chosen have been writing shows for award-winning groups throughout their careers.

More importantly, though, is that Manny will ensure that the band director gets the highest-quality custom arrangements and will constantly review the product during the writing and revision processes.
