Abstract:

This reference book for the analysis of arranging techniques is written from a composer's point of view. Its aim is to help composers and arrangers improve their compositional skills as well as their understanding of various musical styles. Through a study and analysis of the scores and styles of the master composers, the author gives a broad view of the music of past and present. The skills and concepts taught will help the aspiring arranger harmonize melodies and write counter-melodies quickly and efficiently, using combinations of instruments and voices, whether for pops orchestra, television, or recordings.
