This new course provides a practical overview of the various elements that go into crafting a compelling song arrangement. Whether orchestrating for chamber ensemble, big band or acoustic guitar and voice, the arranging choices we make impact the listener’s perception of a piece of music and can either help or hinder the listening experience. Through the exploration of arranging techniques applied to numerous musical settings, students gain a set of tools and listening skills to help make better writing choices. The goal of this course is to assist arrangers in embracing a song’s intrinsic qualities, providing methods for amplifying its effect on the listener.
