Why do I need an arrangement

There are several interpretations of the word “arrangement”. In the Soviet methodology, it meant transferring finished music to another performing staff, for example, from a piano to a four-voice choir, from a vocal duet to a trombone duet with balalaika. When the subject of instrumentation begins at a music school, students begin to get confused – how is the arrangement different from instrumentation. Another interpretation is variation, i.e. approximately the same changes as when composing variations: changes in tempo, rhythm, size, style. At the same time, significant changes are often made to the author’s melody.

The arrangement can go so far that it completely replaces the original music with another one that is not Continue reading

Kach in dance music

Somehow I thought about one thing: sometimes one bass, drummer and a pair of cymbals are enough for people to want to twitch from this primitive thing! Why it happens? What is the reason? In the process of studying this phenomenon, the theory of couch was born, about which a series of articles is devoted. I can not guarantee that after reading them your compositions will become hits, but I would be glad about it.

Review article for beginner musicians

The training problem is one of the most important, but, unfortunately, the least covered, which often leads to disastrous results in terms of creative growth: without laying the proper basis at the very beginning of the path, it will subsequently be difficult to get on the right track. The first thing you need to decide is how seriously do you plan to master musical science. If the matter is limited to the performance of simple melodies, then, in fact, any device is suitable – regardless of the type of mechanics and the number of octaves. But if your intentions are more thorough, then this is completely different. In such a situation, an instrument with an 88-key (7 octaves) “heavy” hammer mechanics is needed, which, by tactile sensations, is as close as possible to a real piano. The question of choosing a digital piano also requires a responsible approach, especially considering that a model with a high-quality keyboard and realistic sound is, alas, not cheap. Yes, but why not just buy an ordinary piano? – you will take an interest. Ideally, this should be done, only because it takes up a lot of space, needs periodic preventive maintenance and does not allow to output sound through headphones. Not to mention the single “built-in timbre.”
