Techniques professionnelles de musique et chanson (Composition et arrangement)

Objectifs du programme

The professional music and song techniques program aims to train musicians and vocalists capable of developing in various styles of popular music. These styles mainly include 20th century music and song produced as entertainment for a mass market: rock, jazz, blues, pop, industry, ethnic, folk, world Beat, etc.

Specialization A : Composition and arrangement

This specialization stream allows the students to acquire skills in arranging as well as composing music and songs. Arrangement is distinguished from composition because the starting point for the activity is an already existing work. The arranger modifies or elaborates on a work to improve it or adapt it to a particular context.
