Their publications include quirky favorites, such as Rosin Eating Zombies from Outer Space and Aria Ready for a Little Opera, to arrangements of classics, like Bach's Brandenburg Concerto #3 and Brahms' Hungarian Dance #5. Their Strictly Strings method, along with its corresponding concert pieces, is also a popular title. In addition, they publish Fiddler's Philharmonic and its sequel Fiddler's Philharmonic Encore! two popular string orchestra titles based on traditional fiddle music. Some of Highland/Etling's writers and arrangers are John O'Reilly, Richard Meyer, Merle Isaac, Vernon Leidig, and Mark Williams.
