Inside an Arranger's Mind
Needs Better Description
This would be new – I get a lot of questions from people on “how do you think up things? What’s your process?” etc. I’ve got several examples that have quite interesting stories that quartets have sung. What goes through an arranger’s mind? There’s a lot of general knowledge – not just arrangers. It isn’t fleshed out but I think it would be cool."

Creating a Visual Plan
UPDATE DESCRIPTION
Whether you are in a chorus or a quartet, or even just singing a solo, your body moves to emphasize the story you are telling. Choreography, or adding movement to the music, helps to bring the story behind your song to life. This basic choreography class will cover simple vocabulary and types of movement that enhance the story. We'll talk about face/body involvement, the benefits and pitfalls of planned choreography, and how to keep it singer-friendly and musically driven.

SmartScore for Learning Tracks
Would you like to generate learning tracks for your chorus? Or transpose it up or down? Of course, you would! Mike (and Judy!) will show you how to scan printed sheet music, and take it into SmartScore X2 Piano Edition. Then, you will learn to correct the few (but inevitable!) errors, mix the piece into part-predominant sound files, and convert them to MP3 format, for burning to CD or listening on a computer or mobile device.
For software, you will need SmartScore X2 Piano Edition, from www.musitek.com. The software costs $80 to purchase, but a non-saving, demo version is free. That’s all you will need for the course for hands-on learning.  Please have it loaded onto your laptop computer when you get here to save a lot of time. If you just want to sit and watch, that’s fine, too.
