    Hi everyone! I'm a new member here, but I've been a lifelong fan of retro Sonic games. Growing up, one of the only games I ever played alongside my dad was Sonic, and I came to love the games, the memories that came along with them, and most of all - the music. Nowadays I enjoy using my abilities on the piano to create unique arrangements of music that I love. The Sonic the Hedgehog Piano Collections project aims to bring professional grade piano arrangement to classic Sonic the Hedgehog tunes in a variety of musical styles, based upon whatever fits each song best. For now, I'll be arranging music specifically Sonic 1 and 2, but I may branch out further in the future. For now, I'd like to share the first work in this project with all of you. If you guys happen to like my work, I'd love to contribute to one of your future projects through my music.

    UPDATE 1/12/2021 - Sheet music for Aquatic Ruin Zone is now available in the video description on YouTube.

    Sonic the Hedgehog - Piano Collections
    --------------------
    Track 1
    Aquatic Ruin Zone (Sonic 2)

    This arrangement of Aquatic Ruin Zone features both elements of classical and jazz piano.
    The mood shifts from playful tango, to dramatic and powerful, to soft and sentimental.
    I hope you enjoy it.

    Hi everyone! Thank you so much for the encouragement and kind words. I'm glad you guys liked Aquatic Ruin! Just a quick update, sheet music is finalized and available on musicnotes (link in the video description). Aside from that, Casino Night Zone is in the works, it's going pretty well so far! Hope to get another one out by the end of the month!

    Thank you! I really wanted to put a large range of emotion and musical ideas into this one! And the sheets are now finalized for this one!


    I wanted to make sure this one kept evolving throughout. I try to make every moment special. Thanks for listening, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

    As a semi-advanced piano player, I really appreciate that you’re taking the time to get arrangements out for all these tracks! You’ve got my support.
