The world loves to sing. The success of mainstream television programs such as Glee and The Sing-Off not only demonstrates the rising popularity of vocal music; it reflects how current trends inspire others to join in. In addition, through various online and on-the-ground vocal music societies, the a cappella market is well defined and well connected.
This book is the long-awaited definitive work on the subject, wide ranging both in its scope and in its target audience - which spans beginners, music students,and community groups to professional and semi-professional performers, vocal/instrumental songwriters, composers, and producers - providing genre-specific insight on a cappella writing.
The tone of the book is instructive and informative, yet conversational: it is intended to stand alongside any academic publication while remaining interestingand fun. A Cappella Arranging is a good textbook and a good read for everyvocal arranger, whether amateur or professional; every vocal music classroom, and any professional recording studio.
