The Thrill of Arranging
Learn simple yet rewarding techniques to coming up with your own contemporary arrangements of your favorite songs from award-winning composer/arranger and pianist Michael R. Hicks. Discover a world soaring off of the page of printed notes as Michael teaches, demonstrates, and performs his own arrangements. Bring a notepad and something to write with. OPTIONAL: come with the melody of a favorite song memorized for a chance to receive hands-on coaching on an arrangement.
Michael has uplifted audiences all over the world – from the Middle East to California, from Calgary to Kenya. His music has won awards and many have performed his arrangements, from small church choirs to famed country stars.
Michael is perhaps best known as the composer of the “EFY Medley,” sung by over half a million youth since 1999 at the Especially for Youth program and sung by hundreds of thousands more in congregations around the world.
Michael has produced multiple CDs and songbooks, his latest being called “Hymn Creations.”
When he is not writing music, Michael enjoys spending as much time as he can with his family. He lives in Salt Lake City with his wonderful wife Natalie, daughter and son
