Arrangement Experience Bootcamp: Make Your Own Kind of Music!
Make Your Own Kind of Music!
What happens when you take some great hits, give them a new point of view and a fresh arrangement? That’s what you will be exploring in The Arrangement Experience Bootcamp! Each participant will select 2 songs. One from the year they were born, and one from the year of a significant life event (wedding, birth of a child, etc). Once the titles are submitted and approved, participants will memorize and learn the songs as is. Then the fun begins!
Over the bootcamp weekend, we will collaborate on personalized treatments of these great songs. We will explore the lyrics, and the style of the song, and create a one of a kind arrangement just for you!
We will also explore backup vocals and group singing. Several instrumental choices will be used. Piano, keyboard, guitars, bass, mandolin, percussion, clarinet, and recorder.
At the end of the weekend, your eyes will be opened to a whole new way to look at music. The Bootcamp finale is a one-of-a-kind performance at Don’t Tell Mama.
