After a full review of writing for the rhythm section, students learn the properties of trumpet, alto sax, tenor sax, trombone, and baritone sax, and the writing/arranging processes of standard and spread voicings, approach techniques, melodic embellishment, and guide tone backgrounds. Focus is on applying the writing processes to soli and background writing for two-, three-, four-, and five-part combinations of these instruments.
