Want to pick the brain of a successful published writer? Want insight into how to write your own arrangements?
Most of us do not have the opportunity to get instruction from today’s top writers in Christian music. In some cases, we can attend workshops but those are rare and often expensive.
Now you can sit with me for an hour and learn from one of the most prolific writers I know. James Koerts has published twenty piano arrangement books through the top publishers in the world (Alfred, Hal Leonard, and Lorenz). He also has about one hundred choir anthems in print. During this one-hour inteview, he talks about his arranging process and what is important to him while debunking seven myths that arrangers often believe.
