<ul><li><p>The Arranging Core Curriculum and Proficiency Assessment Arranging classes, in combination with ear training, harmony and music technology courses, will provide you with a broad-based musical vocabulary, important skills for your major studies, and a well-rounded musical background. Every entering student is placed into one of the following Arranging courses based on the proficiencies, skills, and knowledge demonstrated on the arranging section of the Entering Student Proficiency Assessment:</p><p>PW-111 Music Application and TheoryAR-111 Arranging 1AR-112 Arranging 2AR-201 Chord Scale Voicings for Arranging</p><p>For more writing and arranging information, also see the Glossary of Terms Used and Recommended Reading List.</p><p>PW-111 Music Application and TheoryThe arranging portion of this first semester course focuses on the basic elements and concepts of music and how those individual elements are combined and interact to create compositions and arrangements as applied to the rhythm section (drums, bass, guitar, keyboard). The content includes melody, harmony, rhythm as separate elements, techniques of music notation by hand both generally applicable to music and specifically appropriate to rhythm section instruments, rhythmic concepts of meter and beat subdivisions, writing for the drum set and bass (including an introduction to the basic elements of rock, bossa, funk, and swing grooves, with variations), introduction to analysis of form and melody, and harmonic implications of melody when combined with the bass line.</p><p>AR-111 Arranging 1Arranging 1 is intended to give students a practical understanding of concepts and techniques of writing for the rhythm section with and without a lead-line instrument/voice in a variety of contemporary musical styles. The Arranging 1 content includes the musical concepts of melody, rhythm, harmony, and form as applied to the principles and techniques of writing and arranging for the rhythm section (drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, basic percussion) and a lead line in a solo instrument, two horns (trumpet, alto or tenor saxophone), or voice. Focus is on the conceptualization process of combining individual components to create a musically satisfying arrangement. Various contemporary musical styles and the musical concepts that comprise them are studied, including writing from the "bottom up" (groove-driven) and "top down" (working with a melody in a lead instrument or voice). Writing assignments incorporate combinations of acoustic, electronic, and/or MIDI instruments. Music notation by hand is also an </p><p>integral component.</p></li><li><p>integral component.</p><p>Textbooks:</p><p>Arranging 1 by Bob DoezemaArranging 1 Supplemental Material Second Edition by Jay Kennedy, Donny Nolan, and Tommy KampMusic Notation by Mark McGrain</p><p>AR-112 Arranging 2Arranging 2 provides a basic understanding of the craft of writing for small groups of wind instruments in combination with the rhythm section. The course encompasses the study of the properties of trumpet, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, trombone, and baritone saxophone, 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. Music notation by hand is an important aspect of the course.</p><p>Textbooks:</p><p>Arranging 2 by Bob Freedman and Ted PeaseArranging 1 by Bob DoezemaArranging 1 Supplemental Material Second Edition by Jay Kennedy, Donny Nolan and Tommy KampMusic Notation by Mark McGrain.</p><p>AR-201 Chord Scale Voicings for ArrangingChord Scale Voicings for Arranging focuses on development of harmonic and voicing skills used to produce arrangements that are professional in technique. The content covers chord scale theory and writing techniques used in five- and six-part writing for instruments, including five-part soli voicings and five-part spread voicings, voicings in fourths, cluster voicings, upper structure triads, and concerted writing for six parts. Score analysis is an extensive component of the course.</p><p>Textbook:</p><p>Chord Scale Voicings for Arranging by Ted Pease and Ken Pullig</p><p>The Ear Training Core Curriculum and Proficiency Assessment</p></li><li><p>The Ear Training Core Curriculum and Proficiency AssessmentEar training classes, in combination with arranging, harmony and music technology courses, will provide you with a broad-based musical vocabulary, important skills for your major studies, and a well-rounded musical background. The Ear Training core curriculum is a sequence of four courses designed to progressively cover rhythm, melody, intervals, conducting patterns, and harmonic hearing. Each entering student is placed into one of the ear training courses based on the proficiencies, skills, and knowledge demonstrated on the ear training section of the Entering Student Proficiency Assessment.</p><p>Once the core requirements have been completed, Berklee students can choose from a variety of ear training electives. Electives range from Performance Ear Training (for each instrument), Rhythmic Ear Training (advanced rhythmic concepts), Harmonic Ear Training (hearing chord progressions), Advanced Ear Training (atonal interval hearing), and Jazz Transcription.</p><p>For more Ear Training information, also see the Glossary of Terms Used in Ear Training and Recommended Reading List.</p><p>Ear Training 1Development of basic ear training skills through singing and dictation studies. Study of songs, intervals, and exercises in the major scale. Study of basic rhythm patterns.</p><p>Textbooks:</p><p>Ear Training Workbook 1</p><p>Ear Training 2Development of basic ear training skills through singing and dictation studies. Study of diatonic materials including jazz standards, bass lines, melodic sequence, intervals, triads, seventh chords, and common harmonic progressions. Rhythmic study will derive from patterns occurring in classical and contemporary music.</p><p>Textbooks:</p><p>Ear Training Workbook 2</p><p>Ear Training 3Ear training skills developed through singing and dictation drills. Selected chromatic syllables are presented through core melodic motives, forming the basis of melodic reading, melodic dictation, and the study and recognition of common harmonic models. Rhythm studies will be similarly presented through rhythmic core motives.</p><p>Textbooks:Ear Training Workbook 3</p></li><li><p>Ear Training Workbook 3</p><p>Ear Training 4Modal singing and dictation studies. Interval studies, two- and three-part dictation. Advanced chromatic studies.</p><p>Textbooks:</p><p>Ear Training Workbook 4</p><p>Harmony</p><p>Harmony classes, in combination with arranging, ear training, and music technology courses, comprise Berklee's core curriculum. All students are required to take the four foundational harmony courses, as listed below under "Requirements," and will provide you with a broad-based musical vocabulary, important skills for your major studies, and a well-rounded musical background. You'll learn the fundamentals of music theory by examining and analyzing contemporary popular music.</p><p>During your initial week at college, you will take a music placement test called the Entering Student Proficiency Assessment, and the results will determine the harmony course in which you will be placed.</p><p>The Harmony Department also offers a minor and several elective courses. See a full list of Harmony Department course offerings.</p><p>For more information about Harmony resources, see the Glossary of Terms Used in Harmony and Recommended Reading List.</p><p>Entrance Requirements</p><p>All students are required to take harmony courses, but entering students are placed into one of the four harmony courses based on the proficiencies, skills, and knowledge they demonstrate on the Entering Student Proficiency Assessment (ESPA). </p><p>You may earn advance placement beyond the first courseMusic Theory and Application (PW-111)by achieving a satisfactory score on the Harmony and Arranging portions of the ESPA. </p><p>What the Program Gives You</p><p>1.

For those who feel that they already have a strong background in music technology, we provide an opportunity to "test out" of MTEC-111: An Introduction to Music Technology. For the purposes of graduation, all students are required either to complete the MTEC-111 course or to receive </p><p>credits-by-exam by testing out.</p></li><li><p>credits-by-exam by testing out.</p><p>You may try online sample questions from the Introduction to Music Technology exam.</p><p>MTEC-111: An Introduction to Music TechnologyThis course covers the following aspects of music technology: basic computer skills, microphones, principles of sound, MIDI, computer-based sequencing and notation, mixers and mixing, cables, synthesis, sampling, an introduction to digital audio, recording principles, effects processing, and audio in live performance.</p><p>Entering Student Proficiency Assessment (ESPA)The proficiency assessment enables Berklee to determine whether advanced levels of arranging, harmony, and ear training are right for you and to place you in classes with students of similar musical knowledge. All first-semester students will take an entering student proficiency assessment. It is important to remember that you cannot "pass or fail" the assessment and that no grade will be assigned to it.</p><p>The ESPA is delivered in two phases. An online ear training assessment is available through the college's student portal. All students are required to complete the online ear training assessment. The online ear training portion of the assessment can be completed in about twenty minutes time. All students take a comprehensive, written assessment once they arrive on campus. The on-campus written assessment takes about two hours to complete, and is scheduled during orientation week.</p><p>Online Proficiency Assessment Sample Questions</p><p>This website provides multimedia sample questions that cover some of the topics found in the arranging, ear training, and harmonyproficiency assessments, as well as the Introduction to Music Technology exam. While your performance on these sample questions should not be viewed as a predictor of your actual first-semester assessment, feel free to try your hand at our Online Proficiency Assessment Sample Questions.</p><p>English Proficiency Exam</p><p>All non-native English speakers are required to take the English proficiency exam, which is administered during orientation week.</p><p>The English proficiency exam is not required for native English speakers.</p></li><li><p>The English proficiency exam is not required for native English speakers.</p><p>Traditional Harmony and Counterpoint Exam (optional)This exam offers you the opportunity to receive credit for Traditional Harmony (CM-211 and CM-212) provided that you demonstrate strong comprehension of the subject matter.
