Arranging for Brass - Module 1: Transcription Plus
This set of videos introduces the basic techniques of arranging for brass.
Much arranging can be a relatively simple process of transferring notes or lines from the source material to the new medium. But the results of even this straightforward approach can be improved by careful consideration of such issues as key, comfortabe range of the instruments and sensible part writing. This module begins with advice on these matters and develops ideas of sharing and doubling lines and creating interest with instrumental colour.
Each of the 6 videos shows the instrumental considerations and musical techniques employed to transfer the original source material into a practical and effective brass arrangement.
The examples in this module are:
Each video concludes with a suggested exercise example with which to put the techniques into practice.
