SECTION C


QUESTION AND ANSWER TYPE

This is the basic form used in some arrangements
where the melody is played by one section and
another section gives the answer.

i.e. BACKYARD PARTY

(A)

INSTRUMENTATION SAME AS ABOVE EXCEPT THAT
THE TROMBONE SECTION, ALONG WITH THE TENOR
SAX, FRENCH HORN AND EUPHONIUM MAY PLAY THE
ANSWERING PARTS.

THE FLUTES, TROMPETS AND CLARINETS SHOULD
PLAY THE SAME RHYTHM UNLESS YOU WANT TO
ADD A LITTLE FLAVOR AND GIVE THE REED SECTION
SOME TECHNICAL WORK.






(B)

SECTION D

BIG BAND OR STOCK
ARRANGEMENT

THE STANDARD ARRANGEMENT PATTERN SHOULD
BE USED AT ALL TIMES.

HOWEVER, ONE MUST SEEK ADVANCE HELP AS THIS
CAN BE A CHALLENGE TO THE ARRANGER.

NOT BECAUSE YOU MIGHT HAVE CREATE A N
ACCEPTABLE ARRANGEMENT MEANS THAT YOU
HAVE ARRIVED YOUR HAS JUST BEGUN.

THIS TYPE CONSISTS OF BOTH WHAT IS PRESENTED
TO THE ARRANGER AND HIS ABILITY TO COMPOSE
ADDITIONAL MELODIES AND INNER PARTS TO MAKE
THE RENDITION A WORK OF ART.

i.e. IF I CAN HELP SOMEBODY

REMEMBER, NO MAN IS AN ISLAND AND ONE SHOULD
ALWAYS BE OPEN TO TOTAL CRITICISM BY THOSE
WHO ARE KNOWLEDGEABLE.






ONE MUST, AT ALL TIMES, HAVE A KEEN SENSE OF
RHYTHM AND HARMONY. IF YOU ARE POOR IN
THESE SUBJECTS, THEN YOU SHOULD KNOW WHAT
TO EXPECT FORM YOUR ARRANGEMENT.
EDUCATION IS THE KEY AT ALL TIMES.



SECTION E

THE TENOR SECTION

FRENCH HORN EUPHONIUM
TROMBONES SEAXOPHONES

THIS IS PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT SECTION
IN THE BAND. ONE SHOULD UTILIZE THEM WITH
CARE AND ATTENTION. THIS IS WHERE MOST OF
YOUR HARMONIC STRUCTURES WILL BE INCLUDED.

TROMBONES AND FRENCH HORN SHOULD ALWAYS
CARRY THE RHYTHM OF THE GUITAR WHILE THE
EUPHONIUM AND TENOR SAX CAN BE USE TO
STRENGTHEN THE THIRD PART EITHER IN THE
MELODY OR THE RHYTHM.








EXPOSE THE FLUTES ONLY WHEN THERE ARE LIGHT
PASSAGES.

USE UNITY AT TIMES, IT GIVES STRENGTH AND
POWER TO YOUR MUSIC. THIS IS USUALLY NOTED IN
THE TROMBONES.

THE ART OF ORGANIZING RHYTHM AND NOTES INTO
MEANINGFUL PATTERNS IS THE GREATEST TOOL
THAT THE YOUNG ARRANGER CAN USE. TAKE
ADVANTAGE OF THIS OPPORUNITY.

WHEN IN DOUGHT, ASK QUESTIONS.

SLOOPY WORK COMES FROM SLOOPY PEOPLE.

THIS IS AFIRST IN A SERIES PREPARED BY SGT. 1797
ANDREW HUNTER FOR USE IN THE POLICE BAND AND
OTHER MARCHING /CONCERT BANDS.
