PNA100: Production and Arranging
Production and Arranging exposes students to arranging and production techniques used in various musical genres and gives them the opportunity to apply these techniques to their own musical projects. In addition to the role of producer, the course explores the roles of the record company, engineer, writer and performer. Students will gain an understanding of pre-production and the technical aspects related to music performance, as well as common production terms, an awareness of stylistic nuances, and appropriate sounds based on style. Students will be paired with an artist with whom they will apply all the learned techniques to produce a recording. For this project, students will be also required to implement workflow planning, budgeting, and project delivery.
