This workshop will explore the fundamentals of arranging theatre music in fresh original ways as well as the fundamentals of composing original music. What happens when you want to turn a ballad into a tap number, a hip hop song into an American standard, or a classic uptempo into a gospel song?  How do you open up a number and create music that highlights and enhances the choreography?  Where do you start to write a song of your own? Working with Broadway arranger/composer Sam Davis, walk through the process of creating new arrangements of existing songs and for composing original theatre music.
