MUS 3425 - Songwriting and Arranging


Credits: 3

This course will begin with a collaborative workshop approach to songwriting in which song ideas and prompts for lyrics and melodies will be developed in community. The class will learn to arrange those developed songs for a variety of worship ensembles in the context of contemporary worship music. We will explore song forms, harmonic progression, instrumentation and texture. Students will learn to notate their completed songs and arrangements using Finale notation software to create charts and lead sheets. Prerequisites: MUS 2310 and MUS 2210.
