are rough (and potentially inconsistently categorized) estimations and just because something
is labeled as easier doesnt necessarily mean its easy. All arrangements on that site are by
Nick Halsey, except where noted otherwise. If he is not listed as the arranger within the sheet
music, he transposed the public domain piece for cellos.
