Live arrangements combine composition and arrangement techniques with educational practice, their aim and result being musical pieces which are developed in a spontaneous and process-oriented manner during rehearsal. Each participant thus plays an active part in the creative process. Both the book and the DVD provide all tips and tricks for live arrangements with different target groups very clearly, from school class to professional choir, from basic level to highly professional performance. Thus, a plain sheet of music morphs into a group arrangement for an unusual instrumentation, a sheet of lyrics into a choral arrangement for several voices, or a succession of chords into a perfectly fitting band arrangement. For many years, Jürgen Terhag and Jörn Kalle Winter have studied and tested the methodology of live arrangements. This fundamental work summarizes their findings for the first time – for everybody who wishes to bring a new creativity to their musical group work.
