Arranging Ensemble

Spring 2019

Taught By: Jacob Garchik

Section: A

CRN: 3758

Credits: 2

Over the course of the semester, students will learn the basics of arranging for a small ensemble, creating and performing their own hands-on projects. Each student will arrange 3 short pieces for the ensemble, which will perform all the arrangements at a concert at the end of the course. Students will be introduced to music notation, dynamic balance, instrumental ranges and techniques specific to the ensemble, and stylistic considerations in adapting a diverse selection of music. Students will be coached on the performance of their arrangements. Throughout the course, students will be sight-reading the arrangements of their colleagues, and will be coached on their ensemble playing. By the end of the course they will be comfortable arranging a work for a diverse small ensemble, rehearsing the work and performing it. This course can be used to satisfy the Chamber Music requirement for Mannes students. Alternately, this course may be used to satisfy the 21st Century Proficiencies (Composition/Arranging) requirement for Bachelors of Music students.
