Fundamentals of Orchestration

Spring 2023

Taught By: Rudolph Palmer

Section: A

CRN: 12125

Credits: 2

Skilled orchestrators are a hot commodity in modern times. Whether your interest is in improving your compositions or to give yourself versatility and an edge in today’s competitive market, orchestration is an important and highly sought after skill. Students will learn to arrange a piece of music for performance by instrumental ensembles. Students will engage in a series of exercises in order to practice and gain comfort in writing music for any musical ensemble, or in order to adapt music composed in another medium. Students will learn the ranges, techniques, and special devices of timpani, horn, string, wind instruments. Students will be assigned pieces to orchestrate from standard classical repertoire. This course may be used to satisfy the 21st Century Proficiencies (Composition/Arranging) requirement for Bachelors of Music students (except Theory, Composition, and Orchestral Conducting majors, for whom this class is a degree requirement).
