Composing Choral Music with Andrew Maxfield

Writing choral music isn’t just for “composers with a capital C” ... if you sing in a choir at church, school, in the community, or even professionally, chances are you’ve wanted to write or arrange something for the choir. The difference between writing something that’s kind of clunky and something that totally pops rests on developing some skills and learning a good process.

In this course I’ll teach you my process using three pieces of mine as in-depth examples, moving from choosing a text to polishing and publishing the finished product. One piece was a Special Commendation winner in the King’s Singers New Music Prize, another was featured at the national NCCO conference (where I was a Composer Fellow), and the third was a private commission.
