Learn to wave your arms with purpose and panache!

In this two-session course, one of Kokopelli's most prolific arrangers, Jennifer McMillan, will introduce you to the techniques and tools she uses when penning her own choral arrangements. The second session will include a reading session of the arrangement you've produced (and you get to keep the recording, too!) Students must attend both sessions in full. 

Prerequisite: RCM Theory Grade Two or equivalent (comfortable with scales, major and minor key signatures, intervals, triads, dominant seventh chords, perfect/plagal/deceptive cadences, rhythmic notation, time signatures, basic musical terminology, dynamic markings, and both treble and bass clef.)
