Learn directly from the masters as they guide you though the 10 Steps to Writing an Arrangement. Discover the inside tricks and techniques used by the pros. Explore new strategies for enhancing the creative process and creative problem-solving. A Cappella Arranging is written for anyone interested in vocal music: beginning arrangers, seasoned arrangers and producers, vocal groups of any type and skill level, students of vocal music, and even music fans interested in a behind-the-scenes look at how a cappella music is made. Techniques in the book are brought alive through notated and recorded examples, including arrangements from the Nylons, Cadence, Committed, and the hit TV series The Sing-Off.
