Ranges, transpositions, characteristics, and idiosyncrasies of the instruments are presented along with examples from the orchestral, chamber, and contemporary music repertoires. At the same time, students learn to apply this knowledge using MIDI, virtual instrument libraries, and mixing procedures to emulate live ensembles. Assignments include orchestrating for acoustic and digital ensembles of various instrumental combinations and musical idioms.
