Arranging Music

Putting music together

If you have musical ability and would like to arrange sacred works for voice and instrument without majoring in music, consider adding the Music Arranging minor to your program of study. The minor offers a thorough knowledge of music theory, notation, and harmony, which are foundational to good arranging technique. You’ll be exposed to beautiful sacred and secular numbers and have opportunities to arrange music for vocal, piano, and instrumental performance.
