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.
James Koerts has published many piano arrangement books through the top publishers in the world (Alfred, Hal Leonard, and Lorenz). He also has many choir anthems in print. During this one-hour interview, he talks about his arranging process and what is important to him while debunking seven myths that arrangers often believe.
