In this video, some of the best and most renowned vocal arrangers share their special techniques for developing vocal group charts. You will learn how vocal charts differ from instrumental arrangements, and how to optimize the potential of an a cappella arrangement regardless of the "style." Other featured topics include chord voicings, writing for specific ensembles, how to make charts "sing-able," and the unique requirements of singers. Presented in an informal and conversational tone, "Arranging for Vocal Groups" is a valuable instructional resource for a cappella singers and arrangers, from beginning to advanced. Interviews with: Andrew Chaiken - The House Jacks, Members of The Swingle Singers, Larry Detweiler - High School A Cappella, Derric Johnson - The Liberty Voices, Britt Quentin - M-Pact, Gary Rosen - Sixth Wave, Richard Bob Greene - The Bobs, Deke Sharon - The House Jacks, The CASA Songbooks, Vybe (Walt Disney), Gabe Rutman-Spiralmouth, Michelle Weir.

He has written music for the feature films "Breaking the Rules," "For Better or Worse" and "Man in the Moon."
