4.0 étoiles sur 5 Careful: Requires an Extensive Knowledge of Theory 14 mars 2008
Par Robert L. Conley - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is an enjoyable read and its chock full of valuable hints and rules that a competent arranger or composer needs to know. Cacavas covers topics that a typical theory text would not venture into.

The author also drops in humorous anecdotes every few pages which, although largely irrelevant to the subject, do give one's mind a break to digest the information just presented. Some less kind readers might call this practice 'name dropping'as the stories invariably involve the author and some famous person.

Finally, Cacavas writes under the clear assumption that the reader has a very solid theoretic knowledge. Without this knowledge, I am sure a reader would get hopelessly confused. The author has pitched the book for the right audience but inexperienced theorists should be aware.

Overall, this is a rare 'textbook' which has me actually wanting more and wanting to learn more. However a potential reader is warned that the anecdotes might get a little annoying (though one can simply ignore them) and those with limited theoretical knowledge should look elsewhere. In the end though, this is money well spent.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Content actually matches the title 8 mai 2011
Par J. Staker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Very few books out there like this, that actually take you on a tour of the authors own method of writing, or composing music. Minus all the stuffiness of most such books, you get right into sketching out a song on paper.
Yes, the author is from the "old school" where you compose on paper, then later arrange and orchestrate your song.
These days we use computers, but still there is a great gap in modern teaching on "counterpoint" or secondary melodies - you know, all the "other stuff" to put in your song besides your main melody. This is a "get 'er done" style of showing you song and theme construction. Practical application and real world advice replace the typical "music theory" which leaves you debating on what to do in the end. And here's my favorite part. This author does not assume that jazz is the only style of music in existence, like almost every other book I have on the subject.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Great Resource! 24 février 2012
Par C. Clay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Cacavas has written a practical, straightforward and well-organized resource book. Having been a middle school band director/lesson teacher for over 25 years, I appreciated his sound advice on tricks of the trade as well as the do's and don'ts of composing and arranging. I found the theory applications to be pretty basic and very understandable. However, if you haven't had formal instruction in music theory you may find this confusing and difficult to understand. Altogether this is a great read and a great addition to your music library.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Informative and helpful 21 février 2014

Good informative advice. Not merely a rehash of theory, form, etc. Helpful examples explain many ideas not touched on in other books of this sort. Recommended.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Old, but good reference 1 avril 2014
Par Joel Everett - Publié sur Amazon.com

The anecdotes are quite interesting, but unrelated to the individual chapters; of most value was the section on fleshing out a sketch into a full blown orchestral score.

Safe bets for school bands are the keys of F, B-flat, E-flat and, to a lesser degree, A-flat. For orchestra, the keys of C and F are probably the safest. For string orchestra, G and D are quite good. &quote;

Strings tend to sound brighter in sharp keys, but then you have to consider the winds, which will then have multisharped keys. Brass instruments are more comfortable in flat keys &quote;
Marqué par 3 utilisateurs Kindle
Any composer or arranger who consistently forces players into the absolute top or bottom of their ranges is a fool (with the exception of keyboards or plucked instruments). &quote;
