In this program, you’ll learn to create dynamic arrangements for rhythm section, horns, small ensembles, sequenced/sampled sounds, strings, and woodwinds, and you'll apply this knowledge to your genre(s) of interest and to a variety of commercial settings, such as television and film. Studying with Berklee’s world-renowned faculty, you’ll take your arranging skills to new heights and become the kind of musician you want to be.
