|Ask the experts.||MUS 111 William Wieland|
Experts are listed by instrument at the bottom of Class Ensemble Project Assignment 1. (A saxophone major knows more about performing the saxophone than I do.) You may ask the experts outside of class, but ask "our" experts. You are writing for the musicians in our class ensemble.|
|On the 3rd Tuesday after spring break, I will scatter the experts nearby and ask them to be ready to perform. The writers will move from instrument to instrument and hear each part performed. I will gradually ask the experts to take their own full scores to the other experts.|
Experts — Perform your entire part in each full score. (The writers need to hear it.)|
— Offer advice.
— If your part is fine, initial next to your name on the instrumentator's class ensemble list.
— If your part needs revision, pencil the revisions where they occur in the score. The writer will make changes and ask you to play the part again.
— If you initial the music, that tells me that you will perform it well at the end of the semester.
Writers — Listen to each part. Do you hear what you want to hear? (Maybe it will sound different, but good.)|
— Ask questions.
— Make revisions until all instrument name are initialed.
— When you have collected all the initials, show your score to Dr. Wieland.
