Arranging For The Concert Band Composed by Frank Erickson. For book. Published by Belwin Mills Publishing Corp. (Catalog # SB01029, UPC: 029156169966)

Arranging for the Concert Band and the separately available workbook are inten ded to introduce students to basic techniques of arranging for the concert ban d. Arranging can be divided into two separate processes. The first deals with scoring and transcribing. Scoring is concerned with such things as voicing, do ubling, balance and color. The term scoring also means the actual writing of n otes on the score paper. Transcribing is scoring music written for one kind of musical instrument or group -- say a piano or orchestra -- for a different ki nd of group. This text deals with those matters. The second part of arranging is the more creative process of writing introductions, modulations, endings, b ackground figures and so on.
