Band Arranging *

ONLINE
February 8May 9, 2021

Hone the skills and techniques for arranging concert band and wind ensemble compositions, and learn the instrumentation, devices, techniques and types of scoring that can be used. Students will prepare one full arrangement as part of this course. This course fulfills the requirement for band-track candidates who are completing the MMEd degree program at VanderCook.

Enrollment limited to 10.

* Band Arranging is offered at two course levels. Students enrolled in the MMEd program at VanderCook are eligible to enroll at the 500 level. Students not enrolled in the MMEd program who wish to earn graduate credit as a MECA Continuing Education student should register at the 7000 level. The difference in credits earned and tuition cost is attributed to the difference in tuition rates for the MMEd and MECA Continuing Education programs. If you are unsure which level is best for you, please contact us directly at meca@vandercook.edu.
