Custom Music Arrangements

Music arranging is the art and craft of writing specific notes and/or chord symbols for the instruments and vocals used in a recording or live performance.

This requires knowledge of the range, strengths, weaknesses, timbre and role of each instrument or voice within the genre of music being written for. Arranging also requires knowledge of orchestration techniques, voicing possibilities, and note doubling techniques to achieve a desired character of sound. An arranger is usually given the task of enhancing or embellishing a song, and that task requires skill and experience on the same level as that of a composer.
